College gives you the space and time to explore subjects you have a genuine interest in! Independent research and analysis is strongly encouraged throughout your degree. While this might seem a bit overwhelming at first, don’t worry — there are plenty of supports in place to help you!

Top Tips - Nodanna 
  • Don’t be afraid to talk to your lecturers if you don’t understand something. If you feel nervous about asking questions during class, approach them after or send an email! 
  • Develop a revision strategy that suits you — whether that’s doing past papers, drawing up mind maps, or talking to classmates. Find past papers here:
  • Don’t leave it all until the last minute! Of course, college isn’t all about sitting in the library all day, but make sure that you keep up-to-date with assignments and lecture notes so that you’re in good shape by the time exams roll around!
