Introduction to university

Take our 'Ready for University' course

After you're registered online, use this quick online course to get top tips from our staff and students. It's designed to help new undergraduates get to grips with university life.

Do you know what to expect from university?

We have created a series of six short activities that you can complete online to help you with your move to university life.

Topics include academic skills, life skills, making friends and becoming employable.

This module lives in Moodle, which you can access via the Student Portal after you have registered online.

It contains written guidance and videos that capture advice and stories from students who were once in the same position as you.

We expect the whole course to take around an hour, and at the end of the course there's a quiz to help you check what you've learned.

Completing this online course and quiz can count towards your Lancaster Award.
