At university you will develop a range of skills that will help you when completing assignments like reading techniques, referencing and making notes in lectures, as well as critical thinking and reflection.
You will need to motivate yourself to achieve; support and help is available should you need it, but how you approach your studies is down to you.Lincoln student
Transitioning to university
There are significant differences between studying at school and the more independent approach that students need to adopt at university.
You will need to take full responsibility for work given to you and keep on top of your own deadlines. Your attendance is also your responsibility and missing lectures can leave you struggling to understand key concepts.
Assignments at school and college come with information provided for you to develop in-depth answers. At university, assignments will be related to what you’re studying, but you will be expected to conduct your own research and develop your own ideas.
Support is available and all the resources you need are at your disposal. You’ll learn how to find and use them when the time comes.
Your Module guide be a good place start, as all your deadlines will be in there. It’s also a good idea to regularly check Blackboard for updates.
If you have questions, you will often need to be proactive and ask your lecturers to clarify what they mean.Lincoln student
