Skills at your fingertips: Skills Hub

Looking for skills support at Sussex? Skills Hub imageStaff and students at the University of Sussex now have access to a one stop shop for study and support needs in one easy to find, online location.

Whatever the type of resource or guidance required, the Skills Hub is the place to go, or to refer your students, to discover the range of support available for Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate students. For Doctoral Research students, please see Researcher Development.

The services in Skills Hub are not new. They are, however, newly put together to make it easier for everyone to find the service or support that they need.

A holistic hub

Imagine that you or one of your students has exams approaching. The sort of help required might include revision techniques, tips on time management, or advice on how to keep calm.

Instead of searching a number of different sites, you can happily click through, or refer your student, to just one place, Skills Hub.

In the Skills Hub Exams and Assessments section, you’ll find a holistic approach to tackling exams.

In a section that offers resources for revision strategies, you’ll also find  therapeutic events and workshops offered by the Counselling service. 

Other resources and events you’ll find in the hub, for example, include;

  • Exams: How to cope a workshop by the Student Support Unit
  • One-to-one advice from a Study Skills Adviser (scroll to the bottom of the page)
  • Revision workshops for all undergraduate years, as well as MA and PhD students
  • Stress workshops from the Counselling service
  • S3: Study Success at Sussex. If you haven’t yet had a look at S3 yet then visit now. There’s extensive help on a wide range of  topics in a mix of  formats; written, video and audio.

Each activity, resource or workshop listed within each section can be easily identified using a handy, easy to reference key.

Key to skills snip

Skills Hub is not just about preparing for exams. It’s also home to resources on Writing and referencing, Library and research, IT skills, Employability and Personal development.


Personal development can include anything from preparing for presentations to the life-long tricky business of managing money. In the Getting Organised section you’ll find a link to the TEL  A-Z of apps which includes a range of mobile apps which may help to manage student learning.
