Being the captain of your ship means taking control of your learning at university. Lack of study skills influences how students choose their courses and subsequently engage in their learning.
UK Higher education is distinguished from general and secondary education by its focus on independent learning — a process, method, and philosophy of education: in which students acquire knowledge through their effort and develop skills for inquiry and critical evaluation. It is an important feature of all UK university courses.
University learning (independent learning/ study) allows you a great deal of freedom to shape your learning experience to suit yourself. The better your study skills, the easier you will find managing that freedom so that you can enjoy yourself while undertaking independent study successfully.
Our study skills modules have been designed to develop university students (current and prospective) as independent learners across all departments and subjects. The modules are unique in their focus on improving students’ cognitive and psychomotor skills. All our modules are online and highly interactive promoting technology-enhanced learning (TEL).
