To give you the best possible start to your course at the University of Reading, complete Study Smart – a free online course which we’ve created especially for all our new undergraduate students.
Study Smart will help to prepare you for study at the University of Reading, which is likely to be different to your previous studies at school, college or in your home country.
With contributions from current students and academic staff from all subjects here at Reading, Study Smart will give you essential insights 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 be able to connect with other new students and share thoughts about this exciting new step in your life, as well as getting advice from current students.
We recommend that you complete the course before the term begins to get the maximum benefit.
The brief course can be completed in a few short sessions and is designed so you can work through it at your own pace.
