What you read and what you think about what you read are important parts of your studies.  There is usually a wide range of material available from the library and online but rarely enough time to go through it all. It is important, therefore, to able to select the right things for your research, to read them efficiently, and to think about what you can take from them.

We have developed a range of resources to help you study in the way that is most suitable and effective for you including our study guides in the right hand menu.

You will find more resources and information on our YouTube channel and on Twitter.
