University life taster

We invite your students to two sessions that will prepare them for their next steps in higher education. Given by MDX teaching staff, they focus on the first weeks at university and the skills they need to succeed in HE.

As a compliment to these, our research team are running focus groups where you and 4 to 6 of your colleagues discuss how you prepare your students for higher education.

What's different? What's the same? What do you need to know?

This session focuses on what your students can expect in the lead up to starting university including the week before they start, induction week and the first week of teaching.

They will also have the opportunity to talk to current MDX students who can relay their experiences of university life first-hand.

Next steps: studying at university

This session allows students to understand what it's like to study and be assessed in a university environment, including the specific language used by lecturers and current students.

Our lecturers and students will explain what skills and qualities are important for university study as well as the strategies for acquiring them. Your students will be then given the chance for self-reflection on their current skills and what they need to develop before starting university.
