Total 301 beginer?

Never been to 301? Only been to 1 workshop and want to know what else we do? This post is for you.


This is our building. You can find us on Glossop Road across from the Bar One entrance to the Union.


And this is our Reception area with helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff. We get loads of questions on stuff like ‘Have my keys been handed in?’ and ‘Where is the workshop?’. We even have some questions on accommodation problems and events in the Union. If we can’t help you, we will know where to send you.

Most students probably know 301 for our workshops. We run academic skills workshops during term time on everything from Academic Writing to Beating Procrastination. These usually run Monday to Thursday evenings and Wednesday afternoons. If you want to book a workshop or see what we offer follow this link:

Workshop space (1)

Most workshops take place in the flexible workshop space (pictured above) and have up to 40 spaces. Not all of our attendees are here because they are struggling with something, many just want to improve their skills even further.

We also offer more than just workshops though. We have 1:1 appointments with a study skills tutor who can advise you on things like managing your workload or exam revision. These run most days during term time and you can book by following this link:


The 301 building is home also home to MASH (Maths and Statistics Help). It does exactly what it says on the tin, tutors to give you help with maths and statistics. They run workshops and drop-in sessions on topics including maths anxiety. You can book a MASH appointment or find out a little more about them here:

We are also the hub for SURE (Sheffield Undergraduate Research Experience) and LfA (Languages for All). SURE offers foundered opportunities to undergraduate students who can then work with an academic member of staff on a piece of research. Languages for All is a scheme to help students who want to develop foreign language skills within their main degree programme.

If you want any more information you can check out our website here: Alternatively you can email us at or pop in for a chat with one of the reception staff.



We are 301 Student Skills and Development Centre and we give academic skills advice to our students at the University of Sheffield. We offer workshops and 1:1 appointments.
