Your studies

Starting a Research degree– Helping you manage the step up!

It's important to get the best possible start to your research degree – from developing an effective relationship with your supervisor to planning your work, and managing your time, it can be a big adjustment.  Here are some things to think about as you begin your research journey.

Postgraduate study – Helping you manage the step up!

Joining the University as a postgraduate, you may have found that the jump between undergrad and postgrad expectations can be quite big. We guide you through this shift and how to make sure you do your best.

What to expect when you’re in final year

You’re in the last year of your degree! Can you believe how quickly it’s gone by? For most of you, this will be the most heavily weighted year of your programme thus far and talk quickly turns to dissertations and long essays. Understandably this can seem a daunting prospect but fear not, we have plenty of resources for you so you’re prepped and ready to take on the challenges of final year.

Managing the step up - you are not a first year anymore!

The most over-used phrase of the first year of your undergraduate degree was probably ‘it doesn’t count anyway’ followed closely by friendly non-advice that ‘all you have to do is pass.’ You’re no longer a First Year and these so-called rules don’t seem to apply anymore.

Studying independently and writing assignments

Are you starting your first uni essay title and scratching your head? Sigh no more, we have all the resources you need to help you achieve your best without losing yourself to a Netflix-induced sleep coma.
