Study Support Campaign

We know that studying for exams, assessments and coursework is tough, and this year it's even tougher, so over the next 4 weeks we'll be bringing you a series of hints, tips, workshops and more, to help you get the most out of your studying and exam preparations.

We'll be working with teams across the across the University to make sure you have all the information you need about the resources and services available, including the Academic Skills, Information Services and the Wellbeing Teams.

We'll be posting every day, so don't forget to follow our social media and check out #NapierStudySupport across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
