Transition Skills

The information found and used along with the skills developed before reaching university are different from those needed during a degree course. This online course is designed to help you understand the transition in the context of Information Literacy while already developing these skills which you can begin using at school.

There are 4 modules each taking between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. On successfully answering the questions in the modules, you will receive a certificate of completion.

Your School Librarian or teacher will be able to assist if you encounter difficulty with any of the modules.

"Making the transition from school to university means using the skills you have, but also being open and active in your approach to learning new skills. This is a time when you will find your own voice. Be confident in yourself, work hard and remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question." Dr Gemma Carney School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work
