Independent learning  

Higher education is different to school or further education. You will be expected to work independently much of the time and reflect on your own work and development. Our guide to learning at university explains what this means, as well as the difference between lectures, seminars, and tutorials and how you can prepare for them. 

You might find keeping a learning journal is a helpful way of reflecting on your progress. 

Working in groups  

Working in groups is another important part of university and some of your assessments might be group ones. Find out more about working in a group, from setting ground rules to delegating tasks.
