Aims of the module:
To help students develop their study skills in order to be successful on Higher Education programmes and as undergraduates. The study skills needed for higher education are ultimately gained through studying at that level; they evolve and mature through practice, trial and error, feedback from others and student reflection. This module aims to provide students with the underlying study strategies that can accelerate that learning process. Students will be encouraged to develop a reflective, active, positive approach to learning, and to take responsibility for their own learning. Such skills promote a deeper understanding of the topics studied throughout the programme; they support lifelong learning, and are the transferable skills desired in the employment context.
