Did you discover that your notes weren’t very helpful when you revised for your last exams? Would you like to learn how to schedule tasks more efficiently to better balance your studies with other activities? Think your writing could use improvement?
Take advantage of the 20 different free courses for undergraduate, honours, and postgraduate students run by the Academic Skills Centre during Term 3. There’s something for everyone, from taking effective notes, revising for exams, managing your time, and learning the basics of Excel and statistics.
Writing is also a key focus. Choose from courses featuring essay writing, paraphrasing, and proofreading. If you find it challenging when you’re given a question to answer for an assessment, come along to the “Understanding the Question” course to learn strategies for unpacking these prompts.
If English is not your first language, you can get assistance with reading, writing, speaking, and listening to gain valuable skills and confidence. There is an English Language Support Programme running once a week, as well as individual sessions for English Language Learners throughout the term.
The Library is also running workshops in Term 3 to make researching and referencing easier for you. Want to know how to use Multisearch or Google Scholar to find books and articles? Check out the “Find It!” and “Google Scholar” workshops. Trying to figure out APA referencing for your essay or report? There are several workshops on APA style as well as the EndNote referencing software.
