We offer Uniskills workshops throughout the year designed to develop your academic skills and confidence for university and beyond.

There are plenty of engaging workshops planned in for Study Happy Week:

Moving Forward with UniSkills
Co-delivered with our knowledgeable UniSkills Student Advisors, this session helps you take the next steps towards finding academic information as well as developing your referencing and proofreading skills. As current 3rd year or PG EHU students, they know everything there is to know about the library and succeeding in your assignments, so come along to find out more.

Grow Your Academic Resilience
During this webinar you will discover the importance of being academically resilient at University. We will help equip you with practical tools to nurture your own academic resilience, help you recognise the qualities of those with a ‘growth’ as opposed to ‘fixed’ mindset, and help you feel confident in dealing constructively with feedback.

How to Action Plan Your Feedback
This bite size webinar will help you make the most of your academic feedback. We will look at how to break your feedback down into target areas and how to complete an action plan that will enable you to develop and improve any areas of concern.

Returning to Learning
Returning to Learning is an online learning community that takes place every other Wednesday between 2.00 and 4.00pm. Join Academic Skills Advisors Kat and Helen to chat about your learning experiences, meet other students and explore tips and strategies to help you settle back into studying.
