Please take care when completing our booking form, selecting your current level of study, ie ‘Taught postgraduate (Masters)’ if you are completing a Masters level degree. Once you’ve booked onto a session, details of what to expect in a face-to-face session and how to join our online sessions will be sent via email near to the event date.

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. If you have any queries about this session please contact the Research Support Team.
