A new and free online course will be launched in February 2015 to help commencing students of all ages develop crucial academic skills like time management, exam techniques, critical thinking plus researching and writing academic assignments.

Developed by the English Language and Foundation Studies Centre at the University of Newcastle, Academic Survival Skills Online will be open for registration from January 12, 2015.

The course is free and open to everyone – whatever your age or level of education. All you need is internet access and a computer, laptop or tablet device and be able to set aside approximately 6 hours each week to complete the course.

The course will begin on February 2, 2015 and run until February 22, 2015 with academics providing feedback during this time.

On completing the course participants will be able to make sense of university texts and lectures, use online libraries for research, and plan and write an academic essay.
