The Library and Student Advice have some top tips to help you keep on track in semester two:

  • Develop your academic skills: sign up to a Skills for Learning workshop via MyHub – sessions include statistics, academic writing and referencing.
  • Use the subject guides created by your Academic Librarian to find specialist resources for your course and support in finding and using information for your assignments.
  • Make use of the IT packages available: from Office 365 to Adobe to SPSS there's free software available to help you make the most of your studies. Ask the Library if you need help.
  • Reach out for help with any personal issues: the Student Advice Hubs are a great place to start and the Students’ Union Advice Service also offers confidential and independent free help and advice.
  • Look after your wellbeing and mental and physical health: make time to relax during your studies and ask for help if you need support or you’re concerned about someone else.
  • Keep your money in check: be sure to budget and get extra support if you need it from the Money Advice Team.
