Academic Skills Certificate

If you attend a minimum of 6 of our workshops throughout the duration of your studies in QUB, and complete a reflective summary of how these has impacted your academic performance then you will receive an Academic Skills Certificate.

This may be used towards an application for the Degree Plus award. If you are a final year undergraduate you must apply for Degree Plus by 1st April. As the Academic Skills Certificates are awarded in January and May each year it is therefore advisable that you qualify for the certificate by the end of semester one.  In the event that you are not eligible until May, and providing you have attended two workshops before the 1st April 2014, you may contact lds@qub.ac.uk for a confirmation letter to validate your eligibility for the Academic Skills Certificate and this should be attached to your Degree Plus application. Following attendance at a sixth workshop you will be required to submit the reflective summary, after which your Academic Skills Certificate will be verified with the Degree Plus team and the Certificate issued.
