Helping new Master’s students develop academic skills


Online learning

As a new student, we know you may be a little overwhelmed. You will be trying to get to grips with your course, make friends, settle into your new accommodation, navigate your way around campus, and find out about the support available to help your learning.

Your Information Specialist will run a teaching session to introduce our services and the specialist resources you can access. You may already have attended it, but if not, look out for it in your course timetable.

SATM and SWEE students will also benefit from working through our Discovering Quality Information eLearning​ before coming along to their session.

All students are welcome to work through our online Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism module. It explains what plagiarism is, and why it is an important issue. We cover the role and importance of citing bibliographic references, and how you incorporate the work of other authors into your literature review correctly, and without plagiarising. This course is only available online. Choose the correct link for your school to complete the eLearning module:
