About the workshops

About the workshops

There are four kinds of workshops within the Professional Skills Curriculum. All are free of charge to students.

1. Practical skills sessions

Practical skills sessions are the most hands-on ways to learn, and will give you an opportunity to practise the skills in question. These sessions have a limited number of participant places and often go into topics in more depth than PSC lectures or online workshops. 

2. Lectures

There are a number of evening and lunchtime lectures on a range of professional skills topics. These sessions are delivered by University staff, external presenters and occassionally students who have extensive real-world experience in their skill area. 

3. Online workshops

The collection of online workshops can be found on Moodle. The workshops generally take an hour to complete, followed by an optional assessment (which is mandatory if you require a passport stamp). 

4. Manager forums

These events aim to provide students who ultimately wish to fulfil management roles with the rich knowledge and management experience of University staff. Over the year there will be a range of events such as question and answer sessions and speed networking events where you can interact directly with staff to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the real-life aspects of becoming a manager.
