Nothing! It's completely free.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we're making arrangements to deliver this programme online in 2020.
You’ll receive information about how to register later in the summer, but if you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The programme covers a whole range of subjects, from how to write coursework and use the library, to managing your money and who to ask for help.
You'll have plenty of opportunities to practice these skills, get feedback from our tutors, and to ask questions. At the end of the programme, you'll know exactly what your lecturers will expect of you, and how to meet those expectations.
There are no tests, but we do set a writing task. If you choose to do this, you’ll get feedback on your academic writing which will give you some ideas about what you can already do well, what you might want to work on, and ways to do that.
