We offer ongoing support workshops on a variety of academic subjects such as structuring an argument, academic style, and criticality as well as maths know-how computing skills. Along with these workshops, we hold drop-in sessions on topics such as referencing, in which you get the opportunity to ask questions and discuss answers with an ACE team member and other students.

Workshops run for approximately 45-60 minutes.

What if I miss a workshop?
If you miss a workshop that you wanted to attend, you can book a one-to-one tutorial where we can go through the content with you. You can also watch our videos and other materials on your VLE related to that topic. Finally, we often repeat our workshops so keep an eye out for another date and time on the workshop schedule.

What will I learn during the workshops?
In the workshops, we will explain and demonstrate how to improve different academic skills. The workshops are interactive so we will set small activities and tasks for you to practice what you are learning.
