Enhance Your Learning

Skills support at the University of Derby

The Library offers a range of study skills support for all University of Derby students. Our workshops and drop-ins take place online and across the campuses. They cover key study skills, such as 'how to reference correctly', 'developing academic writing skills at University', 'using Word and Excel', and many more. Click the 'Workshops and drop-ins' calendar link for details and to access the sessions. The 'Enhance your learning toolkit' contains videos, guides and activities on a wide range of study skills, digital skills and research skills topics, including citation and referencing, academic writing, finding information and using Microsoft Office. 

If you need specific or subject based support regarding your research skills, you can book a one-to-one-appointment with an Academic Librarian by clicking on the 'Book an appointment' link below.
