BEAT-IT STUDY SKILLS PROGRAMME

Whether you are studying for pleasure, to further your career, to increase your knowledge of a subject or to acquire new skills, we hope that you will take advantage of the study skills support program that we offer at Kreation Station. We feel that it is important to review and develop your study skills so that it will not only boost your confidence but help you succeed. It will also enable you to work more effectively in the time available to you for study.

Kreation Station also recognises that it is important to develop and improve study skills over a longer period than just a few short weeks especially if it is for the purpose of taking on a 3 or 4 year undergraduate programme. Therefore, we note that it is an individual process where you may need to brush up your note-taking or writing skills as well as acquiring some tips on spelling or grammar, or even to acquire and practise presentation skills. Whatever your study skills needs, we hope that you will find the support and guidance we provide helpful and that you will enjoy the opportunity to get to know and work with students with similar goals and concerns.
