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 workshopsone 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.

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.
