Preparing for University

Harriet Jones, UEA (University of East Anglia)

##

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 such 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.

By completing this online course you will be able to:

  • explore the skills needed to do well at university
  • engage with the key skills required for success at university
  • identify with what university lecturers have to say about skills their students excel at or struggle with
  • explore what lecturers value in their students
  • collect top tips for coping with the university learning environment

This course will also prepare you well for the teacher-led ‘Pre-university Skills Programme’.

This course is for anyone considering a course of study at a University or similar higher education institution.
