What can I expect from a bootcamp session? 

Sessions are online in Zoom, or if you can't make the session, you can choose to receive a copy ofthe slides and session recording instead. Two advisors lead the session, while our team of expert librarians and skills advisors are in the chat to answer any questions you might have.

In our sessions, we:

  • Break down the process: Gain a step-by-step understanding of how to plan and write an assignment at university level.

  • Share examples: We use student work examples to show you what successful assignment writing looks like. 

  • Answer your questions, no matter how small: A team of expert moderators are in the chat each week to answer questions live, and we offer weekly online drop-ins and 1-1 appointments between sessions.
