Transition Days, Summer Schools, Virtual Study Skills Days

Ordinarily, as a SWAP student, you would be invited to the campuses of all our partner universities for "Study Skills Days", which are events designed to make your transition to university easier. 

Those events had to be cancelled due to the pandemic; however, your universities still want to help you make the move from college to uni as smoothly as possible. To help you with that process, they have put together some resources for you to access from home. These may take the form of a 'virtual' Study Skills Day or a summer school session, or you may be directed to existing resources for current students. 

Please make time to engage with these materials and give yourself the best chance of success with next year's studies.
