Study Happy

Studying is a huge part of your university life, so it’s important that you are learning at your happiest and healthiest. Let us help you discover your perfect study-life balance and be study happy!

3 ways to be Study Happy this November

Book on to a UniSkills Workshop

November is full of UniSkills workshops designed to boost your academic skills and confidence for the year ahead and beyond. Booking is free, and you can attend as many workshops as you need. Take your pick from the sessions below.

Look after your wellbeing

Being study happy isn’t just about academic skills, wellbeing plays a big part in thriving at university too. So if you want to worry less, learn mindfulness techniques, manage stress or just get stuff done, join us in a series of sessions this November – there’s a workshop for you!

Try a UniSpeaks session

Got an upcoming presentation? UniSpeaks gives you a safe space to practice speaking in front of an audience. Come along and listen to others present, have a go yourself and learn strategies to present with more confidence in a friendly and supportive environment. UniSpeaks runs the last Wednesday of every month, 2pm-4pm in Willow. Read more about our UniSpeaks ethos


Get peer-to-peer study support and guidance from other students

Have you met your Student Advisers yet? Student Advisers are on hand every week to help you on a peer-to-peer basis. They’re all current 2nd year, 3rd year or postgraduate students and can offer you a variety of subject knowledge from their individual disciplines, as well as a wealth of experience about studying at Edge Hill. Book a 15 minute appointment and let them help you to get to grips with all the study skills you need.

What can Student Advisers help me with?

The Student Advisers can help you get the most out of your library, including finding and using physical and virtual resources for your studies. They can also help you to develop a range of introductory academic skills and introduce you to more specialised support if you need it. Book a session with them and get help with:

  • Searching the Library Catalogue for books and eBooks
  • Using Discover More to find online journal articles and other online resources
  • Navigating Learning Edge/Blackboard and your subject specific ‘My Library’ Tab
  • Finding and accessing UniSkills academic support material
  • Harvard referencing

Upcoming workshops and webinars

Whether you want to brush up on your study skills or find new ways to improve your wellbeing during your time at university, there’s plenty on offer this month.

Can’t make it to a workshop? There are also online webinars happening in November and UniSkills has a range of online help and resources available 24 hours a day – the best place to start is your My Library tab in Learning Edge or the UniSkills webpages. Here you’ll find a range of support, from assignment planning and referencing skills to exam preparation and time management.
