Study Skills: Getting the Most Out of Lectures,
Tutorials and Practicals
Settling into the culture of learning at University
can be difficult whether you have come straight from
school, from an employment situation or from other educational
establishments such as Further Education Colleges. Classes
are large, sometimes over full and it can be hard to
get to know people. Going to practical classes helps
you to meet people because you are usually working in
pairs or small groups where it is easier to introduce
yourself. Tutorial groups are also helpful because again
you are working with smaller groups of students.
