Ahead of the upcoming exam period, we’ve pulled together some great sources of help and advice available to you so you can get the support you need to do your best.

Drop-in study skills sessions

The Centre for Academic Development offers drop-in study skills sessions on Zoom where you can receive advice and support on structuring your time when revising.

Group study spaces on campus

Revising in a group can be a fun and motivating way to prepare. If you and a group of friends want to study together, you can book a group study space in our libraries.

Practising self-help

If you’re worrying about exams, the Wellbeing team has a helpful exam anxiety self-help guide on its webpage.

Events on Headington Campus

  • Crafternoon Tea - All students are welcome to drop in to the Garden Room, Buckley Building, Headington Campus, between 1.00pm and 3.00pm on Wednesday for tea and down time. If you would like to do a craft, there are materials available, or you can bring your own project. Rest during your revision helps to keep your mind and body healthy so you can be more effective when you go back to your work.

Online support from Togetherall

Online support is available 24/7 to all students from our partner Togetherall. Three online courses are available which may help you before and during exams. These courses can be completed at your own time and pace:
