5 March 2018

These workshops do not need to be booked in advance – you can just turn up on the day.

Please note the spaces available for each workshop in the descriptions below. Spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Workshops will be repeated through the academic year, so if you don't get a place you can try again at a later date. 

Can't Study? workshop

There are five places available on each date. These are one-off sessions so you can choose which one of these dates to attend.

  • Tuesday 24 April (during Revision Week)
  • Tuesday 1 May
  • Tuesday 15 May

Time: 1.30-3pm
Venue: Advice and Counselling Service, Room GC214, 2nd Floor Graduate Centre, Mile End campus

This is a small, one-off group session (for up to five people) which lasts for 90 minutes, for any student who is finding themselves blocked in their work. You might be lacking motivation, finding it hard to organise your work, or imagining that your work will be heavily criticised or harshly judged. You might think of yourself as a 'perfectionist' or as someone who tends to put things off. You might be having trouble finishing off your work or handing it in. In the workshop, you will work together collaboratively with a counsellor/facilitator to understand why you might be blocked and to find strategies which will help you to get working again. Although you are welcome to come back for another workshop session, most people find that coming once is enough to help improve their work habits or get them started. You will be asked to complete a short feedback sheet at the end of the workshop.

Managing Exam Stress workshop

There are 15 places available on each date. These are one-off sessions so you can choose which one of these dates to attend.

  • Thursday 26 April (during Revision Week)
  • Thursday 10 May
  • Monday 21 May

Time: 1.30-3pm
Venue: Advice and Counselling Service, Room GC214, 2nd Floor Graduate Centre, Mile End campus

This workshop focuses on practical strategies to help students manage exam stress. It is natural to feel stressed about exams, in fact part of what you are being tested on is your ability to perform under pressure, however, if you feel overwhelmed, you may find coming along to this workshop helpful. This will be an active workshop involving work in pairs and as a group. The facilitator will provide a supportive and informative session to help you develop better ways to manage exam stress. You will be asked to complete a short feedback sheet at the end of the workshop.
