Online Workshops

We run free academic skills workshops for students who would like support with academic and study skills, computing and data analysis with Excel. We run sessions both online (schedule below) and on campus sessions.  For information on referencing workshops, visit the ACE page on your VLE.

ACE Academic and Study Skills Workshops July to Oct 2023

ACE Data Analysis with Excel Workshops July-Sep 2023

ACE Computing Workshops July-Sep 2023

Each workshop is interactive: first we explain an academic skill and demonstrate how to improve on it. Then you will have the opportunity to practise what you are learning through activities.

The workshops are approximately 45 to 60 minutes long and are open to all students. You do not need to prepare anything in advance.
