Students and staff share their views on how to be a successful student and some practical strategies for tackling day-to-day learning tasks and assessments.

"Your academic journey starts with the knowledge and abilities that you bring with you to your studies. You will learn with lecturers and other students as you become part of the academic community in your subject area."
