Our own Vice-President Academic Representation had the following to say, “ASK Week is an amazing scheme for our students to get involved in. You all have the opportunity to attend a wide range of workshops that cover areas such as report writing, discovering your learning style and the 5 essentials of CV writing. We urge every single one of you to attend some of these workshops as they will undoubtedly contribute to your academic development here at Brunel.”
Who Is ASK?
ASK is the abbreviation of The Library's Academic Skills (ASK) service. ASK is there to support every single Brunel student to develop the skills they need to learn independently and thrive academically, whatever their level or subject they maybe in.
Over 11,200 students accessed ASK last year through visits to its central workshops and events, individual advice meetings and visits to workshops in schools. 95% of students who attended the central workshops rated them to be ‘Very Useful’ or ‘Useful’.
What Is ASK Week?
ASK Week takes place during weeks 7 and 21 each year and has become an important part of the student calendar at Brunel. The majority of sessions are delivered by ASK with significant contributions also being made by the Library, the Disability and Dyslexia Service, the Placement and Careers Service, Brunel International and the Counselling Service.
Last year, 534 students attended various workshops during ASK Week, and an overwhelming 97% said they found the workshops very useful. This year ensure that YOU are one of the students who benefit!
