Study skills events
From making notes to structuring your writing, we offer a number of study skills events to students which take place across all UWE Bristol campuses:
'How to' online workbooks
As an alternative to attending our study skills workshops, you can also use our 'How to...' workbooks, which are closely aligned with the workshop sessions. You'll find similar exercises in them, but different examples.
These are perfect for you if you can't make it to any of our sessions, prefer to work at your own pace, or would like to recap a workshop you have attended.
Communication skills for international students
Develop your English language and communication skills with our series of workshops.English language workshops
Faculty study support
Many faculties may provide appointments, workshops or one-to-one sessions tailored to your subject.Faculty study support
If you have already tried the above options and still need support, you may wish to book a one-to-one appointment with a member of library staff. Appointments last around 30-45 minutes and are based around staff availability.
When you book an appointment, please supply the following information:
- what is the problem you are having?
- what strategies have you already tried in order to address this?
- what is your timescale?
During an appointment, library staff will be able to look at small sections of your work and coach you to apply study skills techniques.
Please note that we do not offer a proof-reading service. View further guidance on checking of assignments.
