From starting your course, through choosing your modules and setting personal goals, studying at university is about developing your independence as a learner and working with academic staff and other students to become capable at critical thinking and communicating your ideas within a scholarly community.
“There are opposing views and you can disagree with them… Critical thinking is about being able to weigh up different points of view and come to your own ground on them” - David Hand, PG student
