Starting your studies is an exciting time, but we know it can also feel daunting. Studying in a university environment might feel different to how you’ve studied previously, whether you’ve been at school, college, in work, or away from academic study for a while.
To help you make the transition to university, we have designed a series of resources which will help prepare you for academic study.
You will learn:
- What is studying at university like?
- What is research?
- What are the different learning environments?
- How does assessment at university work?
Starting your Studies at King’s explains some of the language and terminology used at university, the different types of learning environments you’ll encounter, and provides you with tools that will make for successful independent study.
It comes with a reflection tool that you can download and complete along the way that helps you reflect on your own knowledge and skill level and identify where you might benefit from further support.
Our 'Starting your Studies at King’s' resource is designed to support your first weeks and months at university. Adjusting to university takes a little time, and everyone’s experience is unique, but by using this resource you will give yourself the best possible start to your student journey.
