TLC faculty design and develop online modules on study skills (Learning Support Programme) that are customised to the SUSS context, as well as academic writing courses to help you improve your English skill.
These are competencies that are especially important if you want to do well in your course of study at SUSS.
These online modules are available in Canvas. The best thing is, even if you cannot spare the time to attend the face-to-face workshops and talks, you can still pick up useful tips on study skills and academic writing by going through these modules on your own.
In a recent survey of SUSS students, TLC found learning effectiveness to be related to the following study skills: goal setting, time management, assignment preparation and examination preparation. So, you may want to make a note of that, and look through the related segments in SD101: Essential Skills for Self-directed Learning.
Hone the skills you require to excel in your studies at SUSS. Set your own goals, exercise discipline, and learn how to manage stress and cope with examination anxiety. Make notes that reflect your own understanding of the subject matter. Gain insights into the thought processes that go into identifying keywords and gathering the required information for your assignments.
