Preparing for University

University of East Anglia via FutureLearn

Overview

Develop writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills for university study

Learning at a university level requires enhanced critical thinking skills, as well as being able to hold a supported, substantive argument and critically analyse sources or data.

On this course, you’ll build the foundations of these skills, so that you can prepare yourself for the challenges of this new learning environment.

You’ll hear from university lecturers on what they value in students and get advice on the more difficult aspects of learning at university.

At the end of each week, you’ll receive a summary of key skills, which you’ll find useful to refer back to as you start your university journey.

This course is designed for anyone considering studying at a university, or a similar higher education institution.

Additionally, learnings from this course can support studying for A-levels, BTECS or other post-16 courses, as well as access or foundation courses.

  • Yichen L.

    Yichen completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    It is not just a course to prepare for university but also a course to help you excel in high school. Also as an international student I find this course really helpful for me to catch up with the educational system (although it's created by a British university and I study in an U.S. school).
  • Jayne M.

    Jayne completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    A useful, pre-university course covering the main differences between college level study and university level study. Each week it covers a different area such as Independent Study or Data Analysis. It would be of great benefit to any student feeling a bit nervous of moving up to Higher Education.
