Welcome to the Study Skills Course

This course is invaluable for students wishing to study further at an international university (at undergraduate and postgraduate levels), or for success in their final years at school. The skills taught on this programme are designed to help students master the essential study skills they need for high achievement. Corporates use it as part of their employee training and development, especially for people entering the workplace for the first time.

The course is based on many years’ experience of successful teaching in UK universities and colleges, to students from various educational traditions, nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. Many have been unused to British methods of teaching and learning, which are applicable to successful study at universities worldwide. We have found that such students have benefitted greatly from such study skills programmes.

The course encourages active and independent learning, enables students to gain valuable insights into their own educational needs and helps develop skills necessary for their progress. This leads to higher achievement as well as to more enjoyment in study.

There is more detailed information about the course below. The FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) page is accessible from the link on the left, as is all the information you require about gaining access to the course.

The cost of the course is a one-off payment of £99.99. Once paid the student will be sent a user name and password valid for 6 months.

How it Works:

The course is divided into eight units. Each unit is a stand-alone unit, but because the course is developmental and the units are connected to each other, there is cross-referencing between units.

Each skill is taught thoroughly, followed by exercises for the student to do. Suggested answers are given.  At the end of each unit, there is a set of questions to test the student’s understanding of the material presented.

Students are also able to post  questions for the course tutor via the Contact Page.
