Skills & Resources

We offer and host a wide range of workshops and sessions to help you develop your academic and research skills. Past sessions have included peer-to-peer advice, Shut Up & Work groups, Write Here Write Now sessions, literature searching and effective researcher workshops.

On Track

We run On Track from March-July to help with your academic writing and self-development.

Write Here, Write Now!

Struggling to focus on your work? Need to get your writing done? Book onto one of our Write Here, Write Now workshops which run fortnightly on Tuesday mornings in the Wolfson Research Exchange.

The session alternates between intervals of focused, undistracted work and short breaks to help you learn how to structure your study time.

Peer Advice

Our postgrads and researchers share their tips and advice on skills development, good practices in academia and hosting research-led events. We also have resources and advice on how to network.


If you are a Postgraduate Research Student, you can also log some of our sessions in Skillsforge, contributing to your overall number of credits.

If you would like to see us arrange a specific skills development workshop, email with your suggestions.
