A new Academic Development week is being introduced on 23-27 October for undergraduates who follow the semester academic calendar.

The is your opportunity to take stock of your learning and develop your academic skills, so you are prepared to progress and succeed in your studies. There are a range of events taking place during the week for everyone to get involved in from workshops to Puppy Day!

Get Started

On 23 October at 11am and 3pm we are running two Get Started sessions in Augustine Hall. In the one hour session you will get the low down on who all the support services are, how they can help you and how you can contact them.


Every day during the week the Library is offering daily tours at Augustine House from 10am-2pm or you can meet up with your Librarians for advice on how to find resources for that next assignment or piece of research from 12-2pm.
