Get ahead with your study!
Northumbria Skills Programme can support you in making the most of your time at university, and help you acquire the skills you need to become an independent and effective scholar. Sessions are held at City Campus and Coach Lane Libraries throughout the academic year, and you can access support when you need it. There are bookable skills sessions on many topics including academic writing skills, giving accomplished presentations, and referencing your work correctly. There are also regular drop in surgeries so if you have a specific question or just need general study skills advice pop along – no appointment necessary!
