On Track Online

We have collated all the resources from 2018's On Track programme into On Track Online, an online course on Moodle for those who were unable to attend the sessions or are looking for more resources and information.

The programme is organised in collaboration with a number of different university departments including, IT Services, Academic Services, Wellbeing Support Services, and the Library's Academic Support Librarians.

If you still require academic support, we recommend that you contact Student Careers & Skills to arrange a drop in session or to attend one of their workshops. You can also find resources and advice from the Academic Writing Programme.

Our Academic Support Librarians can help you with literature searching and referencing advice. Find out more about the referencing with Endnote Online and attend a workshop to familiarise yourself with this software.

For wellbeing support, attend a wellbeing drop-in or contact Wellbeing Support.

Need specific support or unsure where to go?

Let us know if there's a service or department that you would like to know more about or that other postgrads and researchers could benefit from and we will look into arranging a session.

Run a session and be part of On Track!

Have an idea for a session? We can offer resources, support and promotion. Workshops could include advice on note-taking, speed reading, top productivity apps or "Things I wish I had known before starting...". Let us know your ideas.
