Study skills development
The Learning and Teaching Team, based in the Library offer:
- one-to-one appointments with a member of the Learning and Teaching Team / Student Mentors (writing, research, study skills, maths)
- open workshops most days during term-time (although the presentation workshops tend to be in Term Two)
- access to the NOW Student Help in NOW.
One of the main differences between learning at school or college and university is that you are much more responsible for managing your own time. Most tutors will, of course, remind you about deadlines, but getting work in on time is your responsibility. Please also bear in mind that deadlines at university are normally very strict. The following are sources of support available to help you with time management.
- The Assessment Survival Kit will help you plan your time for assignments.

Presentations are one of the most commonly assessed skills at university and so it’s important to get them right. The following forms of support are available.

Exams and revision
The most important principle for revision is to learn your subject as you go along. If you skip lectures and seminars, or don't do the reading, then it's almost impossible to catch up by revising. Here are some valuable resources to help you revise and prepare for exams.
- See the Revision and Exams guide in NOW.
- The Learning Development Team runs revision workshops early in the summer term.
