Here are our 5 top tips for your successful studies at Sheffield Hallam University from the Skills Centre!

1.  Take our e-module

Our introductory e-module introduces you to the essential skills you need for success in your academic studies.  It takes just 30 minutes to complete and you will receive a personalised action plan on completion.

2.  Attend our webinar

Introduction to Academic Writing in the UK is our new webinar designed especially for students new to the UK higher education system.  You will learn about academic style, referencing, and how to effectively structure a paragraph. Log in to Unihub to book your place.

3.  Register for Studiosity

This highly-regarded service is provided to you on behalf of Sheffield Hallam University.  It is free for you to use up to 8 times each year.  You can upload an extract of your writing and receive a personalised feedback report which will cover spelling, grammar, style and referencing.  You can register via MyHallam.

4.  Book a one to one appointment

You can attend a 30 minute one to one tutorial with one of our academic writing specialists. These take place online or on campus, and you can discuss anything from your academic writing to your research skills.

5.  Study alongside other students

Our Focused Work Sessions are a great way to study alongside other Sheffield Hallam University students – you can keep up to date with your studies and get motivated! Sessions start February 1st. 

We look forward to meeting you soon!
