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.

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.


If you wish to attend, please book by e-mailing , giving (a) your full name (b) your student number (c) your department and (d) your year of study. The Revision Skills Workshops will be held in Room 2, First Floor West of the Mile End Library.

Dates and times are as follows:

Thursday, 1st March:         10:00 - 12:00;   Wednesday, 21st March:   14:00 - 16:00

Please bring with you:

  • A pen & plenty of paper
  • Your notes on the particular topic you most wish to revise
  • As many past examination papers as you can find on that topic
  • The dates of all your examinations this summer

During the session, we shall work with you to make some REALISTIC revision plans, putting in all the work you need to do. After that, we shall help you to do some REAL revision, giving you some techniques and tips along the way. 

Let us know any questions or queries you may have.

We want this session to be both useful and enjoyable and to allay panic!

As a follow-up, we shall shortly be advertising our Exam Practice Sessions, so watch this space! 

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. The next one is on Wednesday, 8th March.

You will be able to find more information at




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.
