Academic skills

University has significantly less structure than school and places more emphasis on independent learning. Adapting to the new standards and expectations that come with university-level academic work can be challenging, even for high-performing students. However there is no need to panic. With practice and time you will adjust! A variety of resources can help you do this. Find out more below.


You can access further help by booking a one-on-one appointment with a tutor from the Centre for Academic, Professional and Organisational Development (CAPOD) to help you develop study strategies or you can attend a drop in session at the University Library between 2pm and 4.45pm on Thursdays.
