My Learning Essentials Drop-ins

Wednesday, 12pm – 1pm, Alan Gilbert Learning Commons training room - 104

Have you got a burning question that you need a quick answer to?

Something like:

  • How can I structure my literature review?
  • Can you recommend a strategy for taking notes?
  • Which databases are useful for my subject and how do I use them?
  • Where can I find help on referencing?

We can help.

My Learning Essentials drop-ins gives you the opportunity to ask that question and find a solution. If we can’t answer your question, we’ll find someone who can.

These are quick informal sessions, there’s no need to book.

NEW: Maths drop-ins

My Learning Essentials maths, stats and data handling drop-ins offer more tailored support in these areas.

Drop-ins are open to all University of Manchester staff and students.

They can get busy though (especially at the beginning of semester) so you may have to wait a little while, but we'll answer your question as soon as possible.

We aim to answer as many queries as we can in the allocated hour. If you have a complex question that we can't answer quickly, we'll get back to you after the session with a comprehensive response.

Please contact for more details.
