Develop Your Academic Skills

Developing your academic skills is an essential part of successful study at University. For example, writing an essay, report or dissertation involves a number of different academic skills – finding and evaluating information, critical thinking, academic writing, referencing and competence in using IT. The ability to analyse problems, manage your time effectively and work productively in groups are also crucial academic skills which will enable you to succeed in your studies and also in your future career.

Skills for Learning has lots of resources to help you develop your academic skills on their website and they provide a wide range of workshops and tutorial support on IT skills, data analysis and academic communication. The Library website also provides subject support on how to go about finding and evaluating information as well as one-to-one support from your Academic Librarian.
