This course gives students the opportunity to develop both the skills required to complete their degree programme and transferable skills that are fundamental to their future career. The course provides sessions and workshops on a variety of skills, including literature appraisal, academic integrity, writing, presentations, note taking and time management. It provides online resources for developing IT and numeracy skills, and acts as a resource for advertising development opportunities both within and outside the university.
The course strongly relies on self-assessment and identification of opportunities by the students to use the support sessions and online resources available. Although the course itself is compulsory most of the course sessions offered are optional, and support is given to the students to help them identify what they most need to work on. Completion of the course is achieved through formative assignments.
This course is the first of two courses relating to generic skills that are compulsory for all taught postgraduate students in the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition.
