Study Start: New 2-week intensive study skills course

Date: 24 January 2013

Study Start is a 2-week intensive study skills course designed to help international students get the best possible start for their degree at Lancaster University.

Starting a university degree, especially if you are moving far from home, can seem a frightening prospect. Often students come with many questions, for example:

  • How will I get used to my new university?
  • Where is the library and how does it work?
  • What kinds of classes will I have, and will they be similar to those in my previous studies?
  • What conventions do I need to follow when writing essays, reports or dissertations?
  • How can I avoid plagiarism?
  • What is the best way to organise my time so I can get everything done?
  • How can I get good marks on my assignments and exams?

Study Start will not only help you find the answers to these questions: it aims to help you become an independent and confident student. You will learn how to get the most out of being at a world-renowned university.

The course will run 16-27th September 2013
