VALUE MaP is a short programme of free workshops for mature and part-time students wanting to extend and develop their study skills. It is open to all students but will be of particular interest, perhaps, to those returning to study after a long break. These informal workshops aim to look at all the tools of the trade, from researching and preparing essays and assignments through to referencing and learning from feedback. Students from previous VALUE MaP workshops have frequently commented on the way in which the relaxed and friendly atmosphere not only helped them to focus on the work in hand but also enabled them to meet other mature students from other departments and form some important friendships. VALUE MaP runs at both the Medway and Canterbury campuses, and full details of dates, times and how to book can be found at https://www.kent.ac.uk/learning/programmes/valuemap.html?tab=contact-details.
