Preparing you for study
Whether you are new to University College Birmingham or returning from placement, the Preparing You for Study courses will introduce you to (or refresh your memory about) the academic skills you will be expected to learn and practice as a student at the university. There is one course for undergraduates (levels 4, 5 and 6) and one for postgraduates (level 7).
The courses include videos from staff and students telling you what to expect from your time at University College Birmingham. They also include lessons about a range of academic skills with a chance to check your understanding as you go. You'll also learn more about the support available to you during your studies.
Each course takes about 60-90 minutes to complete, but you do not have to do it all in one sitting. You can complete a few lessons at a time and come back to the course later.
If you have your student login, you can access the Preparing You for Study Canvas course here. We're looking forward to meeting you soon!
