The Learn With US Transition Programme

Academic skills guides

The Learn with US transition programme presents a range of academic skills guides that will assist the transition to university and help develop academic skills needed to be a successful student in lectures, seminars, research, essay writing and examinations.

The guides provided below have been exclusively written for the Learn with US transition programme and have been made freely available by the University of Southampton for all staff and students to use, copy and disseminate.

The guides have been created to give an accessible introduction to the essential academic skills students need in Higher Education.

In addition to the guides, we also run a highly successful online course 'developing your research project'.
