The ten units are:

  • Independent learning
  • Critical thinking
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Visuals
  • Research

What is the approach?

Each unit begins with a video introduction where a teacher explains a challenge learners will face ("No matter what subject you study, you’ll have a mountain of books and articles to read...") and students give their own views based on their own experiences. The unit then takes learners through a series of teaching points and interactive activities, helping them to develop the skills and strategies they need to meet this challenge.

How is the new version different?

There are two new units on Independent Learning and Critical Thinking. There is more extensive use of authentic texts: articles, book blurbs, websites, a BBC lecture... And each unit has been comprehensively enhanced and extended based on feedback from the hundreds of schools and universities already using Study Skills Success.

How can I use it?

The program is ideal as a self access resource or as integrated classwork or homework components of a taught course, where it can (optionally) be delivered through Blackboard, Moodle or other VLEs.

Help your students prepare to study in English - with Study Skills Success!

System requirements

There is a choice of licence types: network or online. The main difference is how students will access the learning resources.

Network licence

The network version is installed within your institution and can be accessed by students only on computers within the centre.
Find out more on how the network licence works

Online licence

The online version is available to students from any computer with access to the Internet. Students simply go to the site and log in. If you are using Results Manager (Learner Tracking licence), their scores will be kept on a central database which you, as a teacher, can similarly access from any computer connected to the Internet.

If you plan to use the program solely within the institution, you should choose the network version; if you would like to integrate the resource into post-class or homework activities, you need the online version.
