Study skills

Outside of your school or faculty, there are facilities across the University to help you develop your study skills or improve any spoken languages.


Through Skills@Library, the Library offers a range of free workshops for students including some aimed specifically at new students. These workshops develop skills such as reading, writing and presenting to support you in your studies. The Library website has more information including a list of current workshops.

Language Centre

If you’re interested in learning a new language or improving a current one, the Language Centre can help. A high standard of training and facilities are available to international students looking for some extra help with English language and study skills or students keen to broaden their horizons with a new language.

In-sessional classes for international students 

The Language Centre offers free, part-time courses that can fit around your studies, if you need academic English language support once you've started your course.
