All our sessions include an element of group or peer to peer work. In certain workshops, such as delivering effective presentations, you will be asked to speak in front of a small group. You are encouraged to ask questions and contribute throughout the session, or to speak privately to the tutor at the end.

We welcome students with visible and non-visible disabilities, specific learning differences, or other complex needs, in all of our workshops. Teaching rooms have lift access and a mobile induction loop is available in some lecture theatres and in the Library. We encourage you to get in touch if you have any specific access requirements, or need more information about the content and delivery method of a specific workshop. We will do our best to ensure that you are able to attend.
