Self-enrol Courses

Resources to help you develop your information and digital literacy skills independently.

To help support your independent learning at university, the Library has developed a range of free, self-enrol courses on the Canvas VLE. Enrolling on these courses offers you the opportunity to build your study skills at a time and pace that suits you. Each of these courses is self-contained and you can either work your way from the start to finish, or you can pick-and-mix which sections you wish to focus on.

HaSS dissertations, theses and research

The courses below are aimed at students undertaking dissertation or thesis work, including postgraduate taught and postgraduate research students. While open to all, they were designed with Arts and Humanities subjects in mind, meaning some examples may not be as relevant to those studying SAgE or FMS subjects.

Postgraduate researchers can also explore workshops available via the Faculty Research Development Programmes.

Reflect on your skills

If you're not sure where to start when it comes to building your information skills, or you want to keep track of your progress, our skills audit quizzes can help. The audit presents reflective questions that help you identify areas for development. They then point you to key sources of help so you can work on improving your skills and understanding.
