Online Workshops

Workshops are held on a variety of academic subjects, study skills, computing and data analysis with Excel. Sessions are held on campus and online.

Each workshop is interactive: first they explain an academic skill and demonstrate how to improve on it. Then you will have the opportunity to practise what you are learning through activities. The workshops are approximately 45 to 60 minutes long and are open to all students. You do not need to prepare anything in advance.
