Stepping Up to Higher Education Workshops
The Stepping Up to Higher Education workshops are designed to give you an opportunity to plan, prepare and practice skills you will need at UCSD. The sessions are held face-to-face and on MS Teams. We recommend you attend both sessions.
‘The foundations of being a HE student and a successful professional’
By the end of the workshop, you will have created planners to manage your time, recognised your strengths and skills you already hold and identified areas for development.
- What to expect from Higher Education
- Organising your time
- Identifying your strengths and areas for development within your current skill set
‘Reading and writing expectations in Higher Education’
By the end of the workshop, you will have practiced reading using a variety of reading techniques. You will understand what academic writing is, how to structure a good essay and have practiced referencing.
