Effective study skills are a vital element in achieving academic success on your course. To obtain a good quality degree, you not only need a good understanding of your subject, but you also require a range of academic and study skills that help you to further develop and illustrate your knowledge. These skills are complex and require practice.

Although you may have developed effective study techniques at school or college, being at university poses some new and unique challenges. Studying at university is an exciting and rewarding experience, but if you are new to higher education, or have not studied for some time, you may find it useful to brush up your study skills.
