The Academic Skills Centre is pleased to announce that its Semester 2 courses are now open for registration through Moodle.


We offer a range of courses aimed at helping students to improve their academic and English language skills.

Courses include:

  • academic writing - helping students align their written work with the expectations of the University
  • presentation skills - helping students develop their skills and confidence
  • critical reading - helping students read texts effectively and critically

Our courses are open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students.

For students whose first language is not English we offer courses designed to develop the fluency and accuracy of their spoken English.

In addition to this programme, students can benefit from one-off workshops within the Students’ Union’s Skills Training Programme

All students can also take advantage of the Writing Centre daily  drop-in sessions and one-to-one tutorials.
