Overview

Our dedicated team of PhD Study Skills Leaders offer a range of support in academic writing, mathematics, statistics and study skills (e.g. time management, exam preparation, understanding assessments) to all students, whether you are anxious about starting your first assignment or want to know how to produce a really good final year project.

​Developing skills is a gradual process and does not happen overnight. It is very much an individual process that you build on as you progress through your programme. Our emphasis is on assisting students ito fulfill their potential, to help improve their self-esteem and employability by becoming more independent and effective. Developing and reflecting on your study skills will help to boost your confidence and support you with the skills necessary to undertake a course in higher education and beyond. Please see the Study Skills Leader videos and our Charter below to find out more.
