Read through the Head Start: Studying at University guide. This will take you through what to expect from university study. Including:

  • the skills that you need to develop to be successful at university

When learning remotely, you will find you have to learn through live-streamed lectures and seminars, or through lecture recordings. The Digital student guide will help you get to grips with online learning and hybrid teaching. You can also self-assess your digital skills.
