What is Study Smart?
Study Smart is an online course designed solely for Reading University students by our Study Advice and Online Course teams. It contains videos, infographics and tips to support you with the academic transition to university level study. There are also active discussion boards, and the opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about the services here to support you to succeed.
Thank you for providing such useful information in one central place, this will be really helpful to refer to during my course! (Primary Education with English student)
Access the resources and download a certificate
Once you have enrolled on Study Smart you will retain access to the resources for your entire degree. You can also download a certificate of completion, which some of you will be asked to upload onto your Blackboard pages, or take to your Academic Tutor meeting.
So helpful and a really useful point of reference which I know I’ll return to and use many times! (Speech and Language Therapy student)
