MicroMasters® at the University of Edinburgh

An introduction to the resources available to support your learning

Get the most out of your studies

This section covers some of the key transferable academic practices and skills that are commonly required for undertaking a course at the University of Edinburgh.

You are likely to find that studying at graduate level is different to your previous experiences of learning, whether in higher education or in a professional capacity. Undertaking a MicroMasters means you'll be working independently, making decisions about your own learning. You might have a heavy schedule outside of the course and therefore need to work out how to organise your time.

The Study Hub from the Institute for Academic Development provides quick advice on specific topics. Some of their resources are linked to from this page, but we recommend you explore their website for more support materials that may be relevant to you.

Academic writing

Critical thinking

Developing your English

Digital skills
