We can help you:

  • Improve your study strategies
  • Reflect on your planning process
  • Develop your academic writing skills


Attend a workshop

The Study Development team runs Study for Success workshops throughout the university year, and they are open to all York St John students. Each workshop targets a specific study skill or assignment type, and is designed to help you develop the tools to improve that skill and apply it independently in your studies.

Our Autumn term workshops run on Tuesdays, 1:00pm to 3:00pm, from week 4 to 9. All sessions will take place remotely through Microsoft Teams. You can find details on our workshop series and register your place below.
