Transition Skills for University

Below you will find information about our Transition Skills for University Canvas course.

The Transition Skills for University course has been created by the Learning Development Service with input from colleagues in the Library, the Centre for Educational Development, and University Schools. Available via Canvas Commons, the course comprises six units of self-paced academic skills resources and is intended to support students’ learning as they adjust to higher education study and transition through University.

The six units are structured thematically and by skill area so to support students’ academic development as part of their programmes:
  1. Becoming a Student at Queen's
  2. Reading and Research
  3. Note-taking and Critical Thinking
  4. Academic Writing
  5. Referencing
  6. Assessment and Feedback
