About the workshop

When working with a long document like your PhD thesis, if you don't use styles, then making the smallest change can take hours. This course also looks at using Word's built-in features to create tables of contents, tables of figures and indexes. This session is a self-paced workshop. You will be following examples at your own pace and a trainer will be on hand to advise you.

Please note: This session is not a drop-in session for assistance with your own work. You will be required to complete a workbook with set exercises.
