To give you the best possible start to your course at the University of Reading, we ask that you complete Study Smart – a free online course which we’ve created especially for new undergraduate students.
Study Smart will help to prepare you for University study, which is quite different to how you might be used to learning at school or college.
Drawing on experiences of current students and academic staff here at Reading, Study Smart will give you essential insight into what is expected of you as a student so you can start your studies with confidence.
Study Smart focuses on three main areas of university study:
- academic integrity
- communicating at university
- independent learning
The course will help you to understand how these concepts apply to you and your studies. During the course you’ll also be able to take part in discussions with other new students, as well as hearing from current students.
We recommend that you complete the course before the term begins to get the maximum benefit. Click here to sign up to Future Learn and start Study Smart now.
The course takes around nine hours to complete and is designed so you can work through it at your own pace.
