Workshops & Retreats

Sometimes you need a helping hand to make sure you're on the right track with your studies.

That's why, at different times of the year, we run inter-active workshops and facilitated retreats for undergraduate and Master's students.




Our Workshops

Booking is strictly necessary for all our workshops.  We like to keep them small so that we can give you as much personal attention as possible.  To book, please contact us at


Reading Workshops

Too much reading and not enough time to get through it?  Lose your concentration? Why not come to one of our regular Reading Workshops?  These run every month on a Wednesday afternoon. Details, dates and venues can be found here:


And we have some new workshops coming up

Proof-reading Your Own Work

You've done your research, written a well-argued essay, but just slip below the grade you want because of your grammar, punctuation, spelling or expression.

We'll show you some techniques for finding the mistakes you make when you know the rules and the mistakes you make when you don't!

This workshop will run twice.  It will run on Thursday, 16th November, and on Thursday, 7th December, from 14:00 - 15:30 on both days.

To book please email with your name, student ID number, department and year of study. 


Exam & Revision Skills

The dates for this workshop will be advertised in the Spring term.


Missed a workshop?  

If you've missed a workshop, or can't make the date, then why not get your own Small Group together?  Let us know who you are, what you want and a range of times you are available, and we'll try to organise one that is specially tailor-made for you and your friends.

Alternatively, if you have an idea for a workshop that we haven't advertised, let us know of your suggestion and we'll do our best to take it up and devise a new workshop on it.


In the late Spring and the Summer term, we shall be running our highly successful full-day retreats on planning, reading and writing for Master's students.


If you're a PhD student, this page will give you information on the help we provide all year round.
