Forthcoming SLAS workshops

See the SLAS webpages for details of workshops run by Kent's Student Learning Advisory Service. Workshops are open to all Universities at Medway students. Students from Greenwich and CCCU should e-mail to book a place.


We offer a range of training that is designed to help develop your study and research skills.

The Student Learning Advisory Service (often known as SLAS), who are located in the Drill Hall Library, also run workshops throughout the year on various study skills, such as essay writing and critical thinking.

We offer instructor-led and one-to-one coaching sessions for students of each partner institution. Please click on the relevant section below for more details.

IT training

If you require help with using MS Office applications or generally feel a bit lost using e-mail and the internet, we offer one-to-one coaching sessions. Please enquire at the Helpesk or e-mail - training MUST be booked in advance, we cannot offer it on a drop-in basis.

There are a number of quick reference guides available as handouts in the library and online. You can also access MS Office online training resources and guides at Microsoft Office training.

Library skills training

Library skills training sessions run every term in the Drill Hall Library training rooms. Most sessions will be run by your subject librarian as part of your programme and will be subject-specific, assisting you in researching for your course work or dissertation. You will be told about these sessions by your lecturers.

Other sessions will be more general and open to everyone. For details of these training sessions available, please see our events calendar, which also contains information about dropins and events run in the library by other departments.

You may also book one-to-one training session with your subject librarian.

Alternatively, visit the Helpdesk for one-to-one help from our on-call librarian.
