Academic Success

A Student's Guide to Studying at University

by Jean Brick, Nick Wilson, Deanna Wong and Maria Herke

Making the transition to university can be a challenge. Besides extending your knowledge and developing new skills, you will also need to communicate in ways that reflect new approaches and values. Academic Success will introduce you to the demands of university study in a clear and accessible way, and help you to understand what is expected of you.

This companion website features additional self-study activities for you to work through at your own pace, alongside a glossary of key terms and a sample chapter from the book.
