Prepare for Success – useful site for International students

December 7, 2009

Received via the JISC RSC South East mailing list this morning:

Prepare for Success is “a free web learning resource for international students in or coming to study at HE and FE in the UK. It was developed with PMI funding though UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs). The interactive, multimedia learning content aims to prepare students for academic culture and help them develop their language skills at the same time.

www.prepareforsuccess.org.uk

The website and learning resources can be linked to from institutional homepages and VLEs; used in the classroom and in a variety of other ways (outlined on website). We are currently in phase 3 of the website development and aim in the next 12 months to create a page specifically addressing some of the needs/ questions of international students in FE.”

This looks like a really useful site which could be recommended to international students before they come to the UK to study, and used to reinforce study skills delivery once on a course.
