Study Skills Support

Whether you are new to university or continuing your studies, you can benefit from the range of study skills support available.

Library Services

Library Services provide a vast range on online resources and services. Search journals, books and other resources online with FindIt@Bham.

You can access subject-specific support, including Skype appointments with your Subject Advisor, through LibGuides, and can search for the resource list for your modules online using ResourceLists@Bham.

You may be able to visit other UK and Ireland higher education libraries through the SCONUL Access scheme, a reciprocal arrangement for staff and students using other libraries.

Full details about these and other services, including libraries on campus, can be found on the Library Services intranet.

Academic Skills Centre

The Academic Skills Gateway has a range of online resources to help build and develop your academic skills, from developing your research skills to maths and statistics.

Canvas Self-Enrol Courses

Canvas is the University's Virtual Learning Environment (iVLE). It is likely that you will need to access Canvas as part of your course, but there are also a number of short, specific courses aimed at students for you to self-enrol on through the Canvas Gallery, from getting the most out of Microsoft Office and other software, to developing your Careers and Personal Skills.
