Education and study skills

Short courses

Study skills courses assist those who are entering or re-entering education to prepare for study. Popular topics include presentation skills, research methods and writing skills.

As part of the Study Skills programme we also offer our students pre-accredited course preparation study days. Additionally, a select number of courses are designed with teachers in mind.
