Courses & events

On campus and online study skills workshops and information sessions for taught postgraduate students.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

The Institute for Academic Development office is currently closed to in-person events and enquirers. We are still working mostly remotely, and will continue to run online events and provide digital-based support and information for staff and students.

Update Sep 21: The IAD will continue to run most of our events and workshops online as we move into the new academic year.  Online events have been popular with staff and students, more convenient and easier to fit in with other constraints and time demands.  We will also begin to run events on campus as soon as it is safe to do so and when room capacity is available.  Looking to the future we will offer a mix of online and on-campus opportunities to staff and students.
