Skip to 0 minutes and 8 secondsReading books, making notes, watching videos, going to class-- these are all things we associate with studying. But after a day of hard work, you sometimes wonder what you actually learned. I've read the same text for the third time. And I'm still not even sure if I know what it says, let alone that I can even remember it for the exam. It can also be that you just do not get around to studying because your schedule is full or you lack the skills to plan ahead. In this free online course Improving Your Study Techniques, you will practise with learning skills you will be able to use for the rest of your life.

You will also meet our three students, who will give practical tips and share their experiences, giving you an insight into different approaches to studying.
