Call for paid student participants: Skills Development

Tue Mar 17 08:00:00 GMT 2015

Are you interested in skills development? If you are, we are interested to hear from you.

The University and the Students’ Union are currently reviewing the skills development opportunities we offer you during your study here in three main areas:

•    Academic Skills
•    Employability
•    Personal Development

To find out more about what you think of the current opportunities we offer, and to help us understand what you would like us to offer in the future, we are running a series of focus groups.

Each focus group will last for one hour. We will pay you £15.00 to participate in one of our groups and provide refreshments.

We are seeking home and international students at all levels of study – undergraduate (UG), postgraduate taught (PGT) and postgraduate research (PGR). We are running the focus groups at the times and dates set out below.

To sign up for one of our focus groups, please email Takashi Yonenaga at the earliest opportunity stating which date and time you can attend.

You will receive email confirmation that you are registered together with details of the venue. Please note that the maximum number of participants in each group is seven. The registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Students who have taken or are currently taking programmes or tutorials offered by the Academic Skills Centre, Students’ Union Skills Training Programme or Careers Service
