Mind the GAP

"Mind the GAP - avoid pitfalls with Good Academic Practice"
  • Good study skills lead to better marks and make you more organised and less stressed.
  • Good referencing and reading widely help to avoid plagiarism.
  • Using high-quality sources of information improves the quality of your work.

Do you want to know more?

If so come to the Guild of Students on Wednesday 25th November for a half day of free sessions to help you in some of these areas, and an information stall to answer questions and give advice.

Feel free to drop in to just those sessions you fancy - or stay for all of them. All events take place in 'The Joint', up the stairs as you enter the building.
