Exam revision strategies

If you are looking to improve on your exam technique you may wish to speak to an Adviser during an Instant Study Skills Advice session. These are every weekday from 10:00-12:00 and 13:00-16:30 (finishing at 16:00 on Fridays). No need to book, simply come along and you will be seen by an Adviser.

You may also wish to check out our self-help resources on exam success.



Our Maths Clinics are held Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00-14:00 and Wednesday from 13:00 until 16:00.

The Writing Skills Clinics run Tuesday from 15:00-18:00, Wednesday from 10:00-13:00 and Thursday from 15:00-18:00.

These are informal sessions (no need to book) where you can pop along at any point.


24/7 Writing Skills Workshops

In addition to our online resources you can also access a range of self-help materials through Blackboard, via our 24/7 writing skills workshops. These workshops take the form of guides and short videos, allowing you to pause and rewind in order to work at your own pace and improve your understanding of academic writing. They focus on a variety of academic writing skills including style, referencing, punctuation and grammar, structuring your work, the editing process and many more!
