Students continue to gain a competitive edge with Study Group’s virtual preparation course

07 October 2020

Innovative virtual preparation course, Prepare for Success, is back to help students gain the skills they need to achieve their academic goals

Following an overwhelmingly positive response from our students, Study Group is delighted to announce the return of Prepare for Success, our specialist virtual preparation course.

Using our 25 years’ experience of teaching international students, we have developed Prepare for Success to include up to 100 hours of high-quality, innovative digital content, created to reflect student needs and give them the confidence and skills they need to successfully progress to Higher Education.

All students who confirm a place on one of our programmes, and pay the first £6,000/€6,000 of their tuition fees, will be given free access to in-depth academic content and English materials from the Prepare for Success course. With this early experience of learning online and independently managing their time, students will be well-equipped to thrive in a university environment.  

In-depth learning materials

Students will have exclusive access to an extensive range of learning materials such as course presentations and interactive self-study activities, along with regular tutor feedback. Carefully curated material is delivered in a number of varied learning sessions to help students become self-reflective, independent, and effective learners. 

During the course, students develop essential skills, including:

  • Study and academic skills, such as time management, note taking, and avoiding plagiarism.
  • English language skills, including reading, writing, speaking and listening for academic study.
  • Cultural and personal skills, such as intercultural communication, embracing a support network and how to maximise group and teacher interaction.

A supportive international community

While learning online, students will be part of an international community as they get to know their classmates and tutors ahead of their academic programme. This early preparation gives students a head start as they immerse themselves in the university experience and prepare to make the transition from home to overseas study.
