Our friendly Student Advisors are brilliant at offering advice about studying in higher education - here are their recommendations for the top 3 resources you should make sure you use during your studies to help ensure that you achieve success!
Your library is one of the most important places you need to find and become familiar with when you first arrive at university! Here you’ll be able to find books and other resources that will help you with your studies. Your University may also offer an online library service - providing you with access to endless online journals and studies, as well as subscriptions to publications you can read for education or for enjoyment!
Your VLE (Virtual Learning Environment)
Most universities host an online VLE portal for their students, to guide you through your qualification and give your teacher a direct way of setting work for you. This is often where you’ll find information about your qualification and your specialist topics - including readings, tasks, and further resources listed by your professors. It’s key to keep an eye on your VLE for relevant further reading - using these resources will help you to gain a good grade in your assignments.
Many professors and lecturers at universities will set weekly “office hours” - dedicated time where they make themselves available for students to approach them with questions. Actively attending office hours to ask for help or to discuss your learning can help you to gain more knowledge and become successful in your qualification. Think of this as an opportunity for a short one-to-one tutorial with your expert teaching staff!
