SWAP Study Skills Days @ universities

SWAP works in partnership with universities in the West of Scotland to provide you with opportunities to visit university campuses, to practice some university-level study skills (e.g. taking notes in a lecture, participating in a seminar/tutorial) and to meet former SWAP students who have since progressed to university and can tell you what it's actually like to make the transition.

Registration is required. Links to registration forms for each event will appear below when registration opens (shortly before each event). 

You may attend more than one Study Skills Day, if you have the time, but the programmes are quite similar. If you cannot attend the event at your first choice university, you can attend one of the others.
