Preparation for higher education

Every SWAP East access programme includes at least one unit of personal development, which is intended to support you in the development of knowledge and skills that will help you as a student in higher education. This is a compulsory part of the core skills component of your programme. 
 
The SWAP Preparation for Higher Education materials, linked below, are there for all SWAP East students (though some documents are discipline-specific).  The introduction includes a timetable, which suggests when you should aim to work on and complete each of the various sections.  

Preparing yourself for studying in higher education also involves reading through all the information and guidance on this website, participating in SWAP study skills events, attending university open days and communicating with SWAP students who are already in higher education.
