Improve your academic skills

The Blundon Centre (Student Life) delivers ongoing workshops throughout the year that will help you to develop and enhance your academic skills.

Students will explore ways of learning through a strengths perspective and find out how to apply that knowledge to both university learning and career.

The sessions for Spring 2019 start on May 15 in the Blundon Centre, UC 4007, and continue every Wednesday at 1pm until classes end. Everyone is welcome and pre-registration is not required. Contact Beth Ryan for more information.
