Academic Skills Project

‌The Academic Skills Project provides subject specific training in academic skills.Logo for the Academic skills project

The workshops are designed and delivered by post-graduates students within the schools- please see the links below for more information about what's going 
on in your school.

The scheme started in the School of History.  After a successful pilot scheme in 2012, three PhD students secured an Enhancement Theme Grant to fund the workshops in AY 2013/14. In the summer of 2014, under the oversight of CAPOD, the scheme was expanded to 10 Schools in the Faculty of Arts and to Science in 2015.  14 schools have now participated in the scheme with new schools joining every year.

See our short introductory videos below for more information about the project overall, and the benefits of the scheme for undergraduate participants and PGR tutors.
