Academic Communication and Study Skills

As UC@Hagley, we teach Academic communication and study skills, which is the compulsory paper (BRDG006) of the Certificate in University Preparation (CUP).

If you are wanting to develop skills and confidence in reading and writing for tertiary study but do not want to underake the full-time CUP course, the ACS paper may be the right option for you. The course of quality face-to-face teaching is structured around whole classes, small group classes and individual mentoring. It covers:

  • reading strategies
  • essay planning and writing
  • academic evaluation
  • citations and referencing
  • study and exam strategies
  • positive education approaches

The next intake runs: June 26 to October 22

The semester 1 course runs from mid February to mid-June (preparing for university entry in Semester 2, 2018).

There is also a full-year option, running from mid-February to late October, in our After 3 programme.
Contact the Enrolments Centre or the Hagley Transitions Team if you are interested in the ACS course.
