Workshops and Clinics

Our workshops and clinics are FREE, friendly, interactive and above all useful!

Some common questions are answered below:

What do we mean by a 'workshop'?

These are taught sessions on a variety of skill areas. They include facilitator input and individual or group activities. More informal than lectures with lots of opportunity to ask questions and talk to fellow participants.

What do we mean by a 'clinic'?

We offer maths clinicswriting skills clinics and revision clinics.

During the maths clinics our Maths Skills Advisers are available to help you work through problems or practise any maths skills required for your course. You bring the work and we focus on your questions. Ultimately the content is determined by the participants, and maths skills in particular benefit from clinics.

Our writing skills clinic allows you the opportunity to practice your writing skills whilst working on assignments required for your course. During this session an Academic Skills Adviser is available to offer advice and tips as you write. Whether you are at the researching, planning, drafting or refining stage of writing, bring your own work along to get the most out of this informal session.

In the run up to assessment periods we offer revision skills clinics. These sessions provide a quiet space to enable you to get the most from your revision, with an Academic Skills Adviser on hand to offer advice. You should bring your own revision work to get the most from these sessions. Come and revise or get instant guidance on technique, learning strategies and time management for exams. 

Workshop Information

We run a vast range of study skills workshops which can all be booked online, covering everything from time management to critical writing skills and everything in between!  You can find out more information and join the mailing list on the Unversity's Student Workshop page.

Clinic Information

During term time we offer maths clinics every Tuesday 12:00 - 14:00, Wednesday 12:00 - 15:30 and Thursday 12:00 - 14:00. These are informal sessions (no need to book) where you can come along at any point and a Maths Skills Adviser will be available to help you work through problems or practise any maths skills required for your course. A full list of the maths clinics and locations can be found on the Student Workshop Programme (maths).  If you have already attended a maths clinic and would like to leave anonymous feedback please go to our maths feedback board.

We also run writing skills clinics during the semester on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 16:00 - 18:30. These clinics are for students on taught courses (UG/MA/MSc). During this session an Academic Skills Adviser is available to offer advice and tips as you write, so you can improve your technique whilst working on assignments required for your course. Come along at any point during the session, settle in and get writing. Whether you are at the researching, planning, drafting or refining stage of writing, bring an electronic copy of your own work along to get the most out of this informal session - why work on your assignment-writing all alone? For a list of dates and locations see student workshop programme (writing).

For information about clinics outside of term time please see the Student Workshop Programme.

In the run up to assessment periods we offer revision skills clinics. These sessions provide a quiet space to enable you to get the most from your revision, with an Academic Skills Adviser on hand to offer advice. You should bring your own revision work to get the most from these sessions. Come and revise or get instant guidance on technique, learning strategies and time management for exams. There is no need to book in advance and you are welcome to come along at any point during these informal sessions. For dates and times please see the student workshop programme (revision)
