Academic skills support for dissertation students

19 April 2022

We know that many of you are busy working on your dissertations, research and extended projects at the moment, and we have a range of tutorials and resources to help. Whether you need one-to-one guidance, an online workshop, or directions to relevant online resources, we are here to support you. 

Join a Your Skills workshop

The Your Skills Programme has upcoming sessions dedicated to the challenges of dissertation writing:

You will find more information about each session, the many more we have on offer this term, and be able to book your place in our events calendar.

Explore online resources

On the Academic Skills Kit you will find a collection of resources specially curated to offer you the best of our dissertation advice, all in one place. Discover help and guidance for every stage from the first draft to the final edit. Take a look at your Library Subject Guide for access to books, journal articles, conferences, databases and other information resources tailored to your discipline.

Visit the Dissertation Clinic

In addition to our usual one-to-one provision, we are hosting a week-long Dissertation Clinic to offer extra support for dissertation and extended project work. Find out more about the clinic, book a slot in-person or online, or come along to the clinic in the Philip Robinson Library and talk to our friendly team. 

Academic skills pop-ups

Alongside our regular bookable drop-ins, we will also be moving around various locations on Newcastle Campus for our academic skills pop-ups. In the coming weeks you will find us at Newcastle University Business School, Walton Library, Language Resource Centre, Law School and the Frederick Douglass Centre. There is no need to register in advance, just come along to ask us your questions. 

Not sure where to start?

If you have any questions about what we can offer or who you can speak to for help, you can get in touch with the Academic Skills Team. Live chat with us on the Academic Skills Kit, Monday to Friday 12:00-16:00, and we’ll point you in the right direction.
