Digital skills training

& Academic Skills Community workshops

We run a number of skills training sessions each term.

Digital skills training sessions and Digital Wednesdays are open to all members of the University. Academic Skills Community and other sessions may be limited to students only. You can filter the list to only show sessions of relevance to staff or research postgraduates.

To book onto a session, follow its link below (you'll need to log in to the booking system). If a session you're interested in is full, sign up onto the waiting list — if we have enough interest in a session we may repeat it. You'll also find copies of our slides throughout the Skills Guides

Most of our training is online but we've made space available on campus should you need somewhere to join from.
