Taught student workshops and webinars

All our workshops are now being delivered online through Minerva Collaborate, rather than in person, due to the coronavirus.

Skills@Library summer programme 2019/20

Our summer workshops are now available to book onto. These sessions are aimed at Masters level students undertaking a research project.
Once a place has been booked by completing our online booking form, we will email further details about the session, including instructions of how to join online.

When booking please take care to complete your details accurately, including your 9-digit student ID number (found on your student ID card) and by selecting your current level of study from the options available. Anyone undertaking a Masters level course should select ‘Taught postgraduate (Masters)’ for example.

In the meantime, take a look at our online resources, where you can find advice on various academic skills topics.

If you are a taught Masters student, you could book onto a  "Shut up and write!" session to boost your productivity. These do not involve any teaching but offer a framework and supportive environment for you to focus on your own work. Attendees will be sent a reminder email a day before the session containing a link which will allow them to join the webinar 15 minutes before its scheduled start time. Audio and video for this session have been disabled but participants will be able to use the chat function. If you have any queries please contact the Research Support Team.
