Learning Support

A short introduction to My Learning Essentials

As you head into your fifth week of teaching, and are getting into the swing of things with your academic assignments and modules, now is a great time to explore My Learning Essentials (MLE). MLE is the Library’s award winning skills programme, designed to support students with their personal development and academic studies.

MLE is for all students regardless of subject or year of study. It combines face-to- face workshops and online resources so you can chose what skills you’d like to develop and chose your preferred learning method. You can come along to a session on campus, work through an interactive guide in your favourite study space or coffee shop, or listen to a podcast on the bus.

The workshops and online resources cover a whole range of academic topics such as essay writing, critical reading, referencing, proofreading and plagiarism. There are also sessions on overcoming procrastination, understanding assignment tasks, planning for revision and even support on finding work and CV writing.

Some MLE tutorials are as little at 15 minutes, so you can develop your skills in bitesize chunks. Be sure to also check out the MLE blog where you can get advice from the Library’s Student Team on various study topics.
