This article provides information on how you can work best in a team or group and also skills to achieve the best results with your team members.

In university, some of your coursework requires you to team up with other people to work on an assignment. Therefore, understanding a team and how it works is helpful for successful working.

The Academic Skills Unit (ASK) offers a wide range of resources, workshops and tutorials for students to use.

The team have put the guides below together to give you ways of understanding how a team works and skills on how to work effectively in a team.

These are just some of the resources ASK has to offer.

ASK offers one-to-one tutorials, additional online resources as well as workshops on a series of topics throughout the year.

Contact details and opening hours for the Academic Skills Unit (ASK) are available here.

The University regulation is clear that all work submitted for assessment must be the unaided work of an individual student, therefore ASK cannot help you to write your report. However, taking part in ASK sessions will help you to develop your writing skills and tackle any study-related issues. Please also note that ASK is unable to proofread your work.
