This module aims to provide and enhance a variety of skills and techniques that allow first year undergraduate Psychology students to get the most from their degree.
University work gives more responsibility to the students' themselves for their own outcomes. As such, most students need to adapt their approach to learning and performance assessments.
We have identified key areas that many students find challenging, but that are a central part of successful students' approach. The module is timetabled to introduce these skills in the first two teaching weeks of the Degree Course, with an extra Revision session timetabled towards the end of the Spring term.
The module employs a variety of teaching modes (Lectures, labs, small group tasks).
