As a university student you can expect to spend much of your time reading and writing various academic texts. Additionally there is an expectation that you are able to work independently and take responsibility for your learning. The Academic Resource Centre (ARC) can work with you to develop your skills in the following areas:
- Academic writing
- Information searching and retrieval
- Presentation techniques
- Study skills
Different ways to develop your academic skills
Come to one of the ARC’s lectures or workshops where you can learn more about for example, the writing process, different search strategies, critical reading and thinking, references/citing, presentation technique, note taking as well as time management.Writer’s toolkit for university studentsLectures and workshops (in Swedish)
