Events and seminars

The Study Advice team offer regular  small group teaching events during term time on a variety of study practices. Sessions are free of charge and open to students from all departments. Many sessions are equally useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students. You are welcome to attend as many or as few sessions as you like.

Our regular seminar programme takes place on Wednesday afternoons in term time. No need to book in advance - just turn up on the day. If a session is heavily over-subscribed, we will try to run it again.

Slides and handouts from our events can be accessed on Blackboard.

Why not follow us on Twitter @unirdg_study to get regular updates on our events programme and more?

Our seminars offer a chance for you to ask the questions you have about key practices for successful study that you might feel a bit awkward about asking your tutor. You can come along to as few or as many sessions as you like.

Attending our seminars can count towards the training component for the RED Award. Please bring your sheet along to be signed: we cannot guarantee that it will be signed retrospectively.

Please note that our seminar programme has now finished for 2016-17. Details of our 2017-18 programme will appear here later in the summer.

Accessing slides and materials on Blackboard

Study Advice Blackboard pageSlides and other materials from training sessions (like handouts and exercises) are stored on the Study Advice Blackboard Learn site, along with many other useful study resources.

Study Advice on Blackboard Learn is an Organisation rather than a Course. You can access it as a Guest without enrolling, but if you enrol, you could get updates on events and new resources that could help you to greater success in your studies. The site has been set up so that you can enrol yourself and get instant access rather than waiting for someone else to carry out enrolment for you.

To find Study Advice on Blackboard Learn and enrol:

  1. Log into Blackboard Learn as usual.
  2. Click on the Enrolments tab.
  3. In the Organisation Search box, type in 'Study Advice'.
    Please note - do not search for Study Advice in the 'Course Search' box on this page, as you will not find it! It only appears in the Organisation Search.
  4. In the search results, you should see an Organisation marked 'Study Advice'.
  5. Click on the arrows to give you a list of actions, then click on 'Enroll'.
