Transition Skills

When you become a university student, you join an academic institution characterised by intellectual curiosity. Here, you will have the opportunity to explore and engage with your chosen subject(s). 

Studying at university requires a transition to a more independent approach to learning.This online course is designed to help you understand this transition and enable you to develop these skills which you can already begin to use at school. 

There are 4 modules each taking between 15 minutes to an hour to complete. On successfully answering the questions in the modules, you will receive a certificate of completion. Your school’s librarian or teacher will be able to assist if you encounter difficulty with any of the modules.
