Study skills workshop

This is a repeat of a workshop delivered earlier this year and it is aimed at students who may have missed it first time round. 

Time management is the most common challenge for OU students, who are often juggling other responsibilities alongside their studies. In this workshop we’ll teach techniques and frameworks to help you plan your workload more effectively. You’ll also have an opportunity to discuss life and study hacks with fellow students in small groups.

Join us from 7 to 8pm.

Study skills workshop

Join us from 1:30 to 2:30pm

Caring while studying can be challenging at the best of times and during Covid, student carers have been dealing with even more than usual. Some OU students may be new to caring due to Covid. This Carers Rights Day, 26 November, the Open University wants to recognise the tremendous work that carers do and showcase some of the support that’s available for our students.

The event is for anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental-health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

During this live event we will respond to questions put forward by students to our panel of academics, advisors and student reps. We will also be launching our new Student Carer Policy and letting you know about new initiatives to support carers. There will be an opportunity to share your experiences of caring during lockdown and chat to other student carers.

Please book your free ticket here to attend this Adobe Connect Online Room workshop.
