Monday 23rd November to Thursday 26th November is Assessment Awareness Week at the London campus. The aim of this week is to raise awareness of the required academic skills of Postgraduate level study at Loughborough University London, as well as promoting the support services available to all students.

Throughout the week a variety of workshops and skills sessions will be taking place which are now available for our students to book.

Monday 23rd November

Disability and Dyslexia Confidence Workshop, 12 – 2pm, LL.02

It is now standard practice for employers to request that candidates demonstrate knowledge of equal opportunities during interviews and job applications to ensure that they create an inclusive working environment; this includes an understanding of neurodiversity and disability. This workshop is open to all students who want to gain a greater understanding of disability and dyslexia and have real life examples of equal opportunities training to employers.
