In this essay, I will critically discuss the some of these adjustments in terms of study skills, which I bring with me as my scholarship at university, and new skills I must develop. I will use two readings and two lectures as my references to support my thesis and main points. The thesis of my essay is first year students need their fundamental study skills to make the necessary adjustments to achieve their successful journey at university. The main points that will be outlined in this essay are the importance of becoming a critical thinker, verbal skill linked with academic writing and note taking skill is related to referencing skill. First year students need their fundamental study skills to build the necessary adjustments to be successful at university.

Each academic field presents the college writer with specific writing styles and unique writing expectations. As stated by Johnson, “College level writing involves more than collecting information from sources and inserting information into your paper” (2009, para. 4).... ... middle of paper ... ...an invaluable tool for the college student. Works Cited Crank, V. (2012). From high school to college: Developing writing skills in the disciplines.
College teaches students discipline and organization (or it should) and how to meet deadlines under pressure. College exposes students to multiple points of view and helps people wade through multiple levels on information in order to discern the relevance and correctness of this information”. Basically, college can do more than just preparing student for their career, but also learning all the other aspect as well. “College is the center of learning” says Melissa Maley. In high school, students only learn the basic skills unless they take specific college classes.
Throughout this course, topics such as the transition from high school to college, learning skills, self-discovery, and career exploration have been discussed. Conversations occurred concerning the challenges and benefits of private and public colleges as well as the transition from high school to college. We also talked about our strengths and weaknesses while studying. Finally we talked about the jobs that we wanted, and the jobs we would be good at. During the rest of this paper, I will go into more detail about the topics we discussed; and go more in detail with what I learned.
Many would say that a college education is one that expands the minds of students and prepares them for living life in the real world. The skills that a student learns in their college classes can prepare them for a career through content preparation, and it can help a student think differently about the world around them. The classes offered through humanities and the social sciences do not always translate directly into careers such as engineering classes might. The requirement of these classes is a remnant of time gone by and the general liberal arts degrees once coveted by colleges and universities. The humanities and social sciences required in the core of most programs of higher education today seek to attempt to provide a well-balanced education to students, specifically those students who otherwise would not choose to take such classes.
Students are unexpected to plan or do anything besides follow the timetable and study schedule from teachers. When a student moves on to undertake university study at undergraduate level, there is demanded to be more self-motivated and independent learning. Such as plan a learning programme that takes into consideration time available for study. As Marshall and Rowland (1993, 41) shown that, ¡¥if students are studying at a distance in tertiary education are needed to be particularly careful in setting priorities and balance a certain time between work and study, family and social life.
These programs allow students to design and personalize their college education by combining courses from various areas of study. Individualized-studies students leave college with a unique major printed on their diploma. With the opportunity to create their own majors in college, students in individualized studies are receiving personalized educations and realizing their ideal jobs. Students base their college major choices on their interests. A study published in the College Student Journal, conducted to reveal information about students who are entering college, utilizes extensive research to identify the factors that influence students’ college major decisions.
