Widening Participation

Study Skills Summer School

Our Study Skills Summer School is the perfect way for University of West London full-time undergraduate offer holders to enhance their academic skills before starting in September 2018.

Summer School participants take part in sessions which will seek to improve study skills such as academic writing, referencing and critical thinking. You will  also meet current staff and students from a variety of areas who can talk about the support in place at UWL such as careers advice, counselling and the student community activities.

Study skills workshops explore:

  • how to become a note-taking genius
  • who can support you in the University
  • getting started on assignments
  • how to make the most out of the library

When?

Monday 16 July - Wednesday 18 July 2018 from 10am-5pm.

Cost?

FREE. Lunch is provided and we will reimburse reasonable daily public transport travel costs (petrol/mileage is not reimbursed) for participants living in a London borough or in Berkshire, provided relevant receipts are produced. 

Who’s eligible?

The Summer School is open to mature learners* of all abilities and backgrounds.
