Continuing Programme

As well as the first week programme, we have organised a series of ongoing events to assist you in getting to know more about studying at the University. These will be held throughout the first semester. You can also get yourself a mentor to help you settle in to uni life.

Information and Study Skills sessions are run by Student Learning Services and the Library. More information will be posted as soon as possible, so please check this page regularly throughout the summer for further details.

Library information sessions

Please see your first week timetable to find details of your Library and IT Induction session (Essential guide to Library and IT).  This is a basic introductory session delivered mainly through a series of (mad and irreverent) videos which cover all the core Library and IT stuff that you need to know when starting at the university.

Thereafter, many academic modules also include Library Information Skills sessions tailored to subject area in their timetabled classes.

The Library also runs drop in sessions at various times throughout semester - check the big tower displays in the Library for times/dates.  There is also a series of lunchtime training sessions for researchers - these are publicised in the Staff Roundup weekly bulletin (received by all staff and postgraduate research students) and also by the Research Office.

Student Learning Services' workshops

Work smarter not harder! Free workshops for undergraduate students including essay writing, oral presentations, revision and exam techniques. The atmosphere is informal and all of the classes are interactive with time to ask questions and discuss issues arising. These will be advertised later in the summer.

We offer a credit bearing module in Study Skills for Learning at University. The emphasis is on developing academic and transferable skills that will support students throughout their degree studies.
