Future Student Updates (COVID-19)

What is the Launchpad Programme?

In supporting your transition to university life, we'll be running a free online programme, covering essential study skills sessions to help you feel confident, comfortable, and connected for when you start your first term. 

Our Launchpad workshops have been focussing on those core study skills aimed at preparing our students for their studies. Our lecturers have been leading the workshops, ensuring that our students are equipped with knowledge and tips to propel themselves into their studies. The workshops have focussed on a variety of topics, from how to become an independent learner, to understanding the concept of netiquette and honing in on reading and referencing skills.


By participating in the Launchpad programme, you will have a chance to become familiar with teaching methods at the college and gain a clear idea of what to expect in your course.
