Learning skills modules
As a student, it's essential to develop skills in time management, study planning and goal setting. We offer a range of free learning skills, or Quick Skills, modules to all our students to help you get started.
These Quick Skills modules are available to everyone with an online account, and are a great way to prepare for study before your Study Period or Session begins. Simply sign in to My study centre, select Student support and then follow the link to Learning skills. Once you activate a module, you have 30 days to work through it.
The Quick Skills modules are:
- An Introduction to Project Managing your Study
Project managers must have a number of skills, such as prioritising, planning, and managing their workload. By applying these skills to your study, you can be more effective and more efficient while balancing your study and your life.
- Setting Study Goals and Objectives
Your study goals will influence the units you choose and your study approach, so it's essential to get clear on your own study goals before getting started. This module will help you clarify your short-term study goals, so you can get closer to your longer-term career and lifestyle goals.
- Managing Risks and Optimising Potential
Learn to assess the risks you have, and how to successfully manage them so you can achieve your study goals. By recognising and managing your risk, you can capitalise on your potential, and create a much smoother study journey.
- Getting to Know your Study Materials
If you don't use your study materials strategically, you may lose valuable time getting organised and searching for the information you need. Learn to identify key information, obtain a content overview, and clarify what is expected of you as a student, so you can make a stress-free start.
- Scheduling Tasks and Time
Every unit comes with its own milestones, such as assignments, exams, and even work experience. By identifying and scheduling your key tasks in advance, you can be more streamlined in your study approach.
- Prepare for and Sitting Exams
The final milestone of many units is an exam. Learn valuable skills to improve your exam results, including exam preparation, time management, and handling anxiety.
