Skills Bridge event

Join us at our pre-arrival welcome event, where we’ll be delivering a range of different informal sessions, aimed at preparing you for University life and higher education so you can hit the ground running in your Staffordshire University journey.

Is this event for me?

Whether you're transitioning from school or college or returning to education as a mature learner this is a great opportunity to make sure you’re equipped with the academic and digital skills and knowledge you’ll need to excel during your studies with us. You’ll also get the opportunity to meet support staff and fellow students from a range of different courses to make friends and connections before you even officially start your studies with us.

As these sessions are aimed at developing you as an independent learner, we are asking that you attend the sessions without any accompanying guests unless absolutely necessary.

Although official COVID restrictions will no longer be in place, we still encourage visitors to bring a mask with them, to be worn at appreciate times as directed by staff.

What to expect

Here’s a flavour of just some of things you can expect to get up to as part of the day, with breaks and refreshments provided throughout:

  • Arrival, Welcome and Introductions
  • Digital Skills
  • University Language and Terminology
  • Student Support Services
  • Library and Academic Resources
  • Tips on becoming a confident independent learner
  • Careers
  • Peer Mentor Scheme
  • Opportunity to tour our campus for anyone who’s not yet been able to join us on-campus

Book your place

Have a question about Academic Skills?

You can join us for one of our online Q&A drop in sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to raise any questions you have or just have a chat about skills in an informal session.

Drop in sessions are 11am or 2pm, Monday to Friday.

There's no need to book, just join the session via Microsoft Teams using the relevant link listed on the Library Skills Bridge web page.
