Study Skills for Academic Success

| 2 Comments

If you are starting the FDLT course in year 1 in September or currently in year 1  going into year 2 you can access this free online course here.

The course is designed to help you if you are about to study an undergraduate course with us or are in your first year and want to:

  • improve your study skills
  • develop your academic confidence
  • better understand what is expected of you in your degree
  • develop greater autonomy as a learner
  • achieve better grades in your assignments

In order to do this, the course focuses on improving your critical thinking, research, referencing, note taking and academic writing skills, to build your academic confidence.

The activities in this course are designed to engage you in specific learning. You will have opportunities to reflect on your learning and to engage with other students through discussion boards and blogs. This is a very interactive course and the more you engage with other learners, the more you will learn.

To participate in this course you must either be a current University of Northampton student enrolled on an undergraduate course or an applicant for an undergraduate course and have selected the University of Northampton as your firm choice institution.

    • Hello Zoey
      I think you can sign up at the link in the post, although it did start a while ago now. We will be building in lots of study skills into Year 1 and especially term 1. Best wishes, Jean
