Academic Skills Gateway


On campus or overseas, you'll be able to access a broad range of online tutorials and advice via our new Academic Skills Gateway. Some have been created by Library Services, and others are highly-recommended external resources.

The Gateway covers a comprehensive range of topics, including:

  • writing skills
  • finding information
  • maths support
  • independent learning
  • citing your sources

Resources include:

  • Guide to Effective Learning
  • Skills4StudyCampus
  • iCite
  • Interactive Plagiarism Course

The Academic Skills Gateway enhances your learning; it provides easier access to our many resources, and will point you in the right direction to access more indepth help and support provided by Library Services. Teaching staff can get involved by  embeddeding the Gateway within their Canvas courses.

It's currently in beta mode, and we want to hear from you - things you like, or things that need to be improved, resources which you'd like to see which we don't yet provide. You'll find a survey to complete within the Gateway.

The Academic Skills Gateway has been made possible by the Academic Enhancement Fund.
