Preparing for university: an online course for students. 

If students are feeling worried about starting university, they’re not alone. Things haven’t been normal this year, and that lack of normality is adding to the already long list of questions that pop up before starting university. It is designed to ease any uncertainties by equipping students with the skills for university learning before they get there. It's relevant for anyone moving from Level 3 study to university.

This free online course can be started at any time and learners study at their own pace. At the end of each week, they’ll receive a summary of key skills which they can refer back to when they start university. They’ll also get the chance to interact with other people on the course via discussion boards. Sign up here.
