Study guides

Study GuidesOne-to-one advice sessions and workshops are probably the most effective ways to find out how to develop your study practices. However, for the times when you need a reminder or a quick tip, or can't make it to campus, our online and paper guides may be helpful. These offer advice on a variety of academic study practices and how to make them more effective 

You can access our Study Guides by choosing the appropriate topic in the Links bar on the left of this page.

Or go directly to the Index of Study Guides to browse a list of topics.

We are also developing a suite of bitesize video tutorials - ideal if you only have a small amount of time or want to focus on a particular aspect of academic practice like critical analysis or improving your structure.

If you are new to university study, why not start by checking out our Tips for Freshers?
