Develop Your Academic Skills

Developing your academic skills is an essential part of successful study at University. For example, writing an essay, report or dissertation involves a number of different academic skills – finding and evaluating information, critical thinking, academic writing, referencing and competence in using IT.

The ability to analyse problems, manage your time effectively and work productively in groups are also crucial academic skills which will enable you to succeed in your studies and also in your future career.
