How does the guide work?
There are five different ways you can take the guide to help yourself or someone else, and you can use it to help other people, too.
First, choose to read it in its entirety, as this will help you make up your own mind about what’s important and useful.
Then choose to listen to a recorded lecture, and to listen in to recordings of other people’s lectures.
Then you can ask the tutor for help, and the tutor can tell you more about the academic work being taught, or give advice about how you might find a course to help with your goals.
You can also watch the recordings yourself, using the audio player below.
What if you can’t listen to the lectures or listen in?
If you can only listen to recorded lectures, you can also take the tutor’s suggestions for improving the quality of the material.
It might help to choose recordings you like and make a playlist, or you can choose a video of a lecture to listen when you’re studying.
You could also choose to have a tutor watch the videos as part of your study and share what she or he has learnt with you.
What kind of information is included in the guide?
There’s a lot of information about different types of education, but the main areas of interest are: learning, career, community, career development and career planning.
What does this mean for you?
There is no set way to do this, but each person has different needs and priorities.
If it’s your first time studying, it’s best if you find out more about academic life before
