To round off our freshers events we want to have a little fun … it is Friday night after all!

We are going to be looking at hobbies and how they can really help to keep you going when studying, as well as giving you an outlet! Study buddies are a Student Hub Live favourite, especially the four-legged varieties, and we will be meeting some of them too. We will be looking for lots of sharing of ideas from you too – so, if you’re a baker, send us a photo of your creations and, if you make other things, please share them too!

Study buddy photos are always welcome. Rumour has it we may even have a guest knight in shining armour!

So you’re embarking on your OU study journey – how exciting! At Student Hub Live we want to welcome you to the Open University and give you some tips to get you off to a flying start.

In this session you’ll find out what being an OU student involves and some of the many rewards. You’ll also hear from others about their best tips including some they wish they had known. Just like when you go to ‘big school’ or start a new job and get faced with loads of similar doors and corridors, we will give a whistlestop tour of the key places you need to know and provide lots of ideas about where to look next.

Oh, and did we forget to say we will welcome you to the Student Hub Live community, maybe with a bit of chocolate talk?!

Study skills workshop

Join us from 7pm to 8pm  

Imagine you are running a steeplechase and you have leapt over numerous hurdles along the way. You hear the bell and it’s the last lap, so a few more hurdles and you are finished, you’ve done it all before so what’s the difference? The difference is that that last lap needs extra effort, that’s where the competition will come, that’s where you really need to demonstrate your perseverance and skill. That last lap is your end of module assessment. It’s not the same as the laps you’ve already been round, it is more important, it carries more weight, and you need to be prepared for it. That’s what this session is about, helping you get ready for the final lap of your module and making sure that all the work you put into it is worth it.

Study skills workshop

Join us from 11am to 12pm  

How do you express the essence of concepts and theories created by someone else? How do you interpret and apply these effectively in your own words? Using other peoples’ ideas is much more than paraphrasing or including long quotes, but it can be challenging to feel confident in what to focus on and also what to exclude. Join us in this popular SHL workshop to find out how to convey and apply other peoples’ ideas in an academically appropriate way that will help you achieve better results in your next assessment.

Study skills workshop

Join us from 11am to 12pm  

Are you a keen note-taker or does the idea fill you with dread? Do you have stacks of highlighted notes that you never look at, or perhaps no idea what ‘good’ notes should look like in the first place? Note-taking is a key skill that helps us make sense of material, digest it and critically evaluate it, and also remember key points for exams or future use. Yet there is no ‘right’ way to take notes, and at this workshop we will show and share different styles of note-taking. If you would like to develop your own style, and perhaps share some of the note-taking techniques you have used, this workshop is for you. We have a special guest, Jay Rixon, who had to develop her own way of note-taking – her ideas are inspirational and fun.
