Summer Study Skills Workshops

Feeling a little apprehensive about starting university? Would you like more information about what to expect from university life and study?  

These two day workshops, run by the Disability Team in collaboration with the GCU Learning Development Centres provide incoming students with useful strategies and advice that will help you:

  • Manage your study more effectively
  • Become a more effective reader
  • Learn about note taking strategies
  • Use assistive technology as study tools

This is what some students had to say about the workshops last year:

“Staff are extremely approachable and nice”  

“The programme gave me a good insight into university life”

Not only will you learn useful study strategies but you will have the opportunity to make new friends, discover your way around campus, and find out about the other facilities and services available to students at GCU.


Attendance is free, and workshop enrolment is open to any incoming student whose studies may be impacted in some way by disability.
