Final day of three day workshop

For students making the transition from level 6 to level 7 studies. Open to all level 6 students at the University of Cumbria who intend to move into level 7 as well as those who have been offered a place on a level 7 course.

Transition workshops for level 6 to level 7 students

When: 22 - 23 June. Final day is 7 September

Where: Fusehill Street Campus

Why: The transition from level 6 to level 7 can be quite challenging for many students. We have devised these three days to help you with this challenge. We aim to break down the required skills and processes for you to succeed as a graduate student into 6 sessions that allow you to explore where you are now and help you understand how to develop your own academic skill set.

Who: All level 6 students at the University of Cumbria who intend to move into Level 7 as well as those who have been offered a place on a level 7 course.

The staff who have devised this workshop are Kirsteen Laidlaw Programme Lead for MA Social Work and Jane Tattersall Programme Lead for BA (Hons) Working with Children & Families. They will be joined by other staff from the department of Health, Psychology and Social Studies, Student Learning and Support Services and other colleagues around the university.

What: This is a 3-day workshop to assist you in the transition from Level 6 study to Level 7. We will help you to consider the requirements of reading, writing and thinking critically as a graduate student.  We will also help you design a plan of action to succeed at Level 7.
