Skills week – Develop yourself.

University is about so much more than just studying, and there are loads of opportunities for you to develop your skills through getting involved and being connected with the wider university community – whether you are student or staff; full-time or part-time; an undergraduate, postgraduate, or research student; live locally or commute; here for a short time (on exchange), or a long time (there are staff who’ve been here over thirty years!)

Skills Week, starting 2nd October 2023, is part of the University’s Be Connected programme. Throughout the week there are lots of events to showcase the many ways you can develop your academic skills, digital skills, and employability skills. Check out the events on the University of Stirling app; come along to the daily popups in Campus Central; or browse our learning resources and pathways for ideas and inspiration of how to develop yourself. 

Information Services have a program of events and resources to help students and staff to improve their digital skills.

Digital skills are essential to working in our fast-evolving digital world. Current technologies are being replaced by more advanced ones increasingly rapidly, so having a strong digital skillset, and feeling confident in your own capabilities will be very important for your study, and your future. 

On our  Digital Skills Hub you can find out more about what digital skills should you have and why do you need digital skills, then use our digital capabilities tool (for students and staff) to take a self-assessment to find out your current skills level, and identify areas for development.

In addition, all students and staff to have access to LinkedIn Learning, a continually growing and evolving library of over 2,800 courses and 110,000 tutorials with new releases every week, covering a wide range of software, technologies and business topics.
