Study Skills Events

University Library Services run a variety of skills support events to help you complete your assignments and to support your research.

Exam/Revision Skills Drop-ins

Every day for one hour, 11am-12pm starting Tuesday 2nd May.

Exam and revision skills drop-ins begin on Tuesday 2nd May and will take place every day at both libraries for three weeks.

No appointment needed. Just stop by the Skills drop-in at either St. Peter's or the Murray Library and library staff will do our best to help you with your exam or revision skills questions, whether you have a specific question or even if you just need a five-minute break and want someone to chat to.
