Study Advice

The University Study Advisors are based in the Library and aim to help students to develop more effective practices for studying, so that they have a clearer understanding of what is expected from them and achieve better marks.

They provide study guides, workshops and individual advice sessions.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism in your academic work can have serious consequences. The University's definition of deliberate plagiarism is "the fraudulent representation of another's work as your own".

Check out the University web pages on plagiarism to understand what plagiarism means and how to avoid unintentional plagiarism.

Find out when you need to include a reference, how to balance research and your own arguments, about working with other students and good practice in note taking.

Safety Bus Service

The Students' Union runs a Safety Bus Service that operates on the hour from 6.00pm until 11.40pm Monday to Thursday leaving from the back of the library.

Students can be dropped off at University Halls of Residence or private accomodation within a defined area, please see this map (PDF, 274KB) for service boundaries.

As the bus can only take eight passengers at a time, priority is given to lone students. If you miss the bus or cannot wait for the next run consider phoning for a taxi from Yell Cars Taxi Service (tel. 0118 966 6555).
