Academic Skills Plus will teach you the academic skills you need to succeed in your university studies. These include how to get more out of your readings in less time, the assignment producing process, constructing introductions, paragraphs and conclusions, integrating sources, critical thinking, academic expression and presenting. You'll have the opportunity to practice these skills both in class and in your assignments. Your assignments will relate to the course's entertaining theme: 'Comedy through the ages'. Each week there will be a one-hour lecture on the theme and a two hour academic skills seminar.
