Moving on to University 

‘Understanding the Game Plan’

Next date TBC

1 - 4 pm

This Workshop is for students about to start their first year at university but those returning for their second or third year of study are also welcome.

Many learners experience difficulties adjusting to the challenges of studying in a university environment. This workshop is designed to give learners the opportunity to develop the skills that they will need, and adapt existing strategies to their new environment. Learners will be able to practise their skills and will take useful resources home with them to aid further practice and to use as reminders.

The session will include the following:

  • Organisation/time management
  • Research skills/selecting the right resources
  • Reading strategies 
  • Note-taking
  • Revision/examination techniques
  • Writing essays/reports/reflective writing
  • Editing /proofreading skills
  • Referencing (Harvard Style)

The session will be delivered by Glynis Lavington who is a Senior Consultant for Adults and Practitioner specialising in the field of dyslexia and higher education. She has worked for many years in the higher education sector as an assessor, tutor and trainer.
