Professional and support services staff from across the University will give you practical information and share their top tips on ‘how-to-do’ something. 

There’s a fantastic range of topics covered, including support and wellbeing, getting started, money management and staying safe at University.

 You can access the 'How to...' information sessions in the following ways:
