This is a vital resource for both potential, and experienced students in higher education, whether undergrad or postgrad. With accessible examples and interactive activities that enable the reader to engage with and learn from their own experiences; this book successfully demystifies some of the structures and processes within HE that can often cause anxiety for students, and introduces language and terminology that students will encounter which is both empowering and developmental. It is recommended reading.
Praise for the first edition ‘A really practical and positive text that underpins student learning. Used time and time again by students. This is an excellent text.’
Good, all round study skills book which will appeal to students who like to reflect on how they learn.
Useful advice for all those intending to progress to university.
Too basic for my students needs. This may be useful as a school text prior to application for university education.
It provides good tips for students to enable them succeed at university.
An excellent resource to prepare students for studying at a higher level, alongside addressing the social aspects of university life.
Would be more appropriate for a student manual.
Useful additional guide for students
Content mirrors the topics covered I the module. This book is written by two colleagues who were instrumental in developing the (skills) syllabus and much of their work is still being used.
This updated edition brings a focus on employability and is useful for students in and beyond University.
Recommended for our undergraduates as an essential resource for academic study.
Good resource for starting out at University. The introduction of activities to engage students and also ample opportunities to reflect is incredibly useful.
This is a great practical guide for students at all levels. It offers guidance on practical, academic and employability issues.
A valuable resource covering personal, academic and employability skills development. A useful general reader for home and international undergraduates and postgraduates.
A good general guide for those seeking to enter HE. While being good for those coming direct from school, I would recommend it for those who have been outside formal education for sometime, in that it explains what is required in a HE setting. As well as covering academic learning, this book deals with the development of transferrable skills and how these can help in enhancing employability.
