Although more students than ever before are accessing the
Library’s Skills Centre, we know that many students
still face barriers to attending our academic skills sessions and using our online resources. We’re currently
conducting research to investigate what factors prevent students from using the Skills Centre, and we’re keen
to hear your views on what more we can do to expand our reach and ensure everyone has the opportunity to develop their
academic skills while studying at Sheffield Hallam.
We are running three online focus groups in March (Monday 27th, Thursday 30th and Friday 31st)– these will last for one hour, with around 45 minutes dedicated
to discussing your experiences of accessing academic skills support and how we could improve our offer to be more inclusive
of a wider range of students.
To thank everyone for their time, participants will each receive a £20 voucher (Amazon or Sodexo).

At the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (AWRC) at Sheffield Hallam University we are currently undertaking research to understand how people feel about having body measurements taken. To achieve this we are looking for individuals aged 18+, from all backgrounds, genders, ages, shapes and sizes to complete a short survey (about five minutes). In this survey we will ask for people's opinions on different body measurement methods. In doing so we hope to improve clinical and research practice for individuals and population groups. All procedures have acquired Sheffield Hallam University ethical approval.
We would greatly appreciate it if you would be able to distribute the survey link to anyone you think would be interested in participating; be that colleagues, family members or friends - we would really like to hear from everyone! If you have any questions or queries about this work please don’t hesitate to get in contact with either myself, Clare Cryan (firstname.lastname@example.org), or the principal researcher, Dr Alice Bullas (email@example.com).

Researchers at the University of Leicester are conducting a project looking at Wellbeing, self-compassion, and sex work. The research project is titled A survey of UK university students: Wellbeing, self-compassion, and sex work. They are interested in learning about any different types of sex work that university students have been involved in, or would consider being involved in, and how different types of work may be related to factors such as wellbeing and self-compassion. We hope that the results can be used to inform support offered by student support services in the future. If you are interested in taking part, please read the Participant Information Sheet.
