The course is 3.5 hours long, spread over 3 sessions (with a 10 minute break after each session).
Study Skills: This session teaches students how to organise their material most effectively, how to develop an effective working schedule, and helps them understand when and under what conditions they work best. This session aims particularly to develop independent learning skills, using a multitude of tasks.
Revision Techniques: This session introduces students to a range of revision techniques and explodes a variety of myths about revision. It emphasises the careful planning of each stage of the revision process in order to get the most from it. These skills will be fundamental to a successful learning career.
Exam Techniques: This session talks about how to approach a variety of different exam papers - in this case, the papers will be of whatever subjects the attendees are studying for - how to prepare in the immediate run-up, how to plan in exams, how to keep time, etc. These skills, too, will be essential in the long term.
