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!
City Campus and Coach Lane Libraries have a range of spaces which are available for you to book online.
Library Study Rooms are small rooms for three to eight people. Some of the rooms are equipped with PCs and some have large digital screens which you can use with a PC or a laptop. Click on the information button by each room to find out more.
Book a Student Central space
You can book Student Central spaces and rooms in the evening and at weekends. On weekdays the spaces are reserved for students to meet with professional support staff for booked appointments or drop-in sessions.

Workshops and briefings are designed to support the development of knowledge, core competencies and transferable skills identified in Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework (RDF) as the key elements of a successful researcher.
