    Clare: Welcome to Skills Hub. This website will help you to develop your academic skills at university. There's plenty of advice from students and from staff.

We also run workshops and tutorials, and you can talk to a student mentor while you're here.
    Remember, you can always come back to Skills Hub for advice whenever you need it. Good luck with your studies at Sussex.
