Some students are successful at the university. Some are not, however they were also successful at their earlier schools. What makes this difference? There can be many such reasons. One of the most important is for sure that most students are continuing their earlier learning practice; however the learning circumstances and the requirements were changed a lot. This leads to failure that causes increasing stress. This leads to more failure. The key point is to break this circle: Change your learning habit, develop your learning skills specific to university learning. The aim of this course is to help students in that in order to maximally benefit from their university experience.
The result of this course will improve your performance in all other subjects at the university. The new skills and habits will benefit in your private life as well and support your career lifelong.
