Settle back into studying
It can be hard to get back into the study mindset after a long break, holiday, placement or interruption. You can get prepared for this next stage by improving your study skills, finding support and accessing key resources - that's where our friends at the Library can help.
The Library isn't just a place to borrow books, it's your one stop shop for academic support. The team can help you improve your study skills through workshops, one to one appointments and access to free courses through Linkedin Learning. Here's just a few ways that they can help you settle back in and boost your study skills for this new stage.
Learn how to learn effectively
Our e-learning guides cover how to find information, personal effectiveness, academic integrity and much more to help you study smarter, not harder.
Boost your academic writing to improve your essays. The team offer general writing support, as well as help if English isn't your first language or you have a Specific Learning Difficulty.
Maths and numeracy support
Numeracy is a key skill in lots of courses, including Nursing, Business and Policing. Our team offer maths and numeracy support through workshops and one-to-one sessions.
Boost your IT skills
Develop your IT knowledge and skills to not only improve your academic performance, but also boost your employability and earn certified qualifications.
Support for second year students
Our team can help you understand the shift in expectations needed to meet the demands of studying at level 5.
If you need more academic support, reach out to the Student Progression Assistants (SPAs) in your school - they can help you to find information relating to your studies, submit Personal Mitigating Circumstances and access support services. Basically, they're your go-to person if you experience any issues that may affect your academic progression. Visit the SU's website for more information about how SPAs can support you and how you can get in touch.
Are you disabled or have a condition that affects your learning? Make sure to contact the Disability Inclusion Service to see what academic support they can provide to help you in your teaching and assessments. This could include extra time for assessments, extended book loans from the Library and support for field trips.
