There are also a series of study skills workshops held throughout the year, the details of which are promoted by the university in advance of the event.
The CAS Department offers daily drop-in sessions for all students enrolled at the University. Support is offered on a one-to-one basis and the session is tailored as per students’ individual needs.
Drop-in sessions focus on developing study, self-help skills and coping strategies for students. Our specialised tutors work with the students to manage their needs in any area of study they find difficult. Typical areas covered in these sessions are: structuring essays and reports, time management, , reading techniques, ,paraphrasing, preparing for exams, revision, and research and note taking amongst others.
There is a strong emphasis on ‘self-help’ to ensure that the student becomes an independent learner. As students then progress through their studies, they feel able to apply these strategies and require less support as they become confident in their own abilities.
