What is Life Tools?
Our Life Tools programme is designed by experts to facilitate your transition into university and enhance your student experience. It allows you to be proactive and take control of your learning and development. The programme is designed specially to contribute to your ongoing professional development.
This year we will continue to provide our talks as webinars, and there will also be some delivered on campus where possible. They are about 50 minutes in duration, including time for questions about the topic. The programme is free and open to all students, with no need to book. More information is available in the new Life Tools programme guide 2020/21.
To find out more about the programme, listen to the Introduction to the Life Tools webinar, or watch the video at the bottom of this page.
As the country and the university are making changes so that we can adjust to the current situation, you may be wondering how to keep well and how best to manage your studies over the coming weeks. As such, weekly emails will be sent via Life Tools on Blackboard, including strategies to manage studies while studying independently.
It is also important to keep active and engage in activities that you find rewarding.If you are concerned about yourself or another student, you can speak to Counselling and Wellbeing service, or the Welfare Service. Fortunately, we have the technology that allows us to maintain contact so we can continue to work together. Keep well and continue learning.
To receive updates, enrol on the Life Tools Blackboard.
