Academic Staff - still time to tell us what you think

What academic skills do you think first year students need for success at University? 


Do you know of the supports available in NUI Galway to help students develop those skills? 


There is an opinion widely held, that students entering third level education from secondary school are not well prepared for the needs of higher education and do not have the core academic skills they need.  The provision of support for academic skills development is recognised as a key factor in student engagement and retention, particularly in first year.  NUI Galway has a range of different services that provide support for these academic skills, e.g. :

·         Skills4Study Campus (online module available via The Learning Centre in Blackboard)

·         The Academic Writing Centre



·         etc.

Academic staff, please complete our survey and tell us what you think about the skills supports needed and available at NUI Galway for first year students.

PLEASE TELL US WHAT YOU THINK

For me, this is the most important thing which we should focus more. Your writing will explain the skills you have. But it is not tough for those who cannot write well they can hire experts for this purpose. You must visit the site and let us know about your experience.

The supporting system is amazing in academic sector. This should be taken in higher education so that students should learn to explore skills. We must thank to people who work hard.
