Get off to Flying Start

Develop your skills and adapt to learning at university level with our Flying Start resource.

There is a lot to think about when you start university, but Flying Start can help you to take some of the pressure off by preparing you for studying at the next level.

Taking the time to go through Flying Start will help you quickly adapt and learn how to study effectively and independently in your new environment. Each section introduces you to new concepts and contains practical advice from our expert Learning Advisors and from other students who have been in your position.

Topics range from introducing you to new ways to learn, all the way through to helping you to make the most of lectures and seminars. There’s even a glossary of all the terminology that might be new to you.

Workshops for you

Starting on 22 September, we are running lunchtime workshops that will help you build on your skills and get yourself ready to take on your course.

These short sessions cover a range of topics that are vital to your degree - including how to get the most out of your lectures, managing your time, reading at university, and how to reference your work.

Some sessions will be available online, while others will take place in the Laidlaw Library.
