Studying at University
There are many reasons for coming to University, but the primary purpose is to get an education and to obtain a degree. Whatever other activities university life has to offer – and there are many valuable opportunities for the London student – it is important that you quickly settle into a routine in which regular class attendance and regular study plays the major part. Personal and practical commitment is essential if you are to keep up to date with set work of all kinds, whether it be weekly language work, practical exercises, or the submission on time of coursework for assessment. Below are a series of links to help you find the support you may need to complete your studies and enjoy your time at Kings.
Learning is never a passive exercise, and true understanding is wholly dependent on you becoming actively involved in your subject. In this context, your reading and personal exploration of an area, as well as your active contribution to class discussions are all important factors in getting to grips with the subject.
Never be afraid to ask your tutor or lecturer for an explanation or clarification; it is more than likely that you will be asking not only for yourself but for several others who are in similar difficulties but lack the confidence to say so!
