UNIVERSITY PREPARATION COURSE
Why join the course?
Higher education is about learning at a higher level: developing skills relating to critical thinking; holding a supported, substantive argument; analysing and using data or sources critically. These are university-level skills but you can work on the foundations of these skills before you get there. Such skills will also help in assessments such as A-levels and extended project work. They are also attributes that employers value in graduates.
In this course, you will explore some key skills needed for success at university. You will hear what university lecturers have to say about skills their students excel at or struggle with, from undergraduates about areas they have found difficult and some top tips for coping with the university learning environment.
At the end of each week, there will be an exercise where you will be self-critical and reflect on your progress. These are important skills for university because they form the basis of independent learning. Each week you will interact with others on the course, compare progress, help those who might be struggling, gain advice and support if you are struggling, and share your thoughts via discussions.
