Students encounter many changes and challenges in making the transition to college. As well as a different vocabulary around the learning environment, students will be supported to take charge of their own learning, and encouraged to move beyond rote learning and to start thinking around the material and the subject area. This newspaper article helps students to understand how to step up to this independent learning, and presents a range of tips for success.
