Academic practice


Study day: Academic practice

Prepare and develop your study skills with this course, specifically if you are planning to study at level 5 or 6 for the first time. We recommend students undertake this short course if they have not studied in the past five years, it will build your confidence in literature searching, reviewing and writing skills. The course includes a supporting learning package that acts as a continuing resource.

There is a short essay to write following the attendance and the short course facilitator will give you feedback on your written work so you are well prepared for commencing the modules in the undergraduate healthcare practice programme. A certificate of attendance will be issued on completion.

Who is this study day for? Health and social care practitioners/professionals considering diploma, degree or continuing professional education, or those wishing to undertake study activity for PREP.
