study ready Units
Many people find the idea of tertiary study overwhelming. This may be particularly true for school leavers or those returning to studies after a number of years. At Perth Bible College we actively support students in their studies by offering two Study Ready units: Effective Academic Communication (Semester 1) and Theological Thinking & Writing (Semester 2). For Bachelor of Social Science Students, these units are combined into the unit.
These units focus on essential academic communication skills and helps students to:
- Develop good question analysis strategies and research approaches,
- Use effective reading plans and writing styles,
- Develop reliable note-taking strategies, and
- Performing public speaking with confidence.
Students usually link one of these units with one of their core subjects. Information supplied in each Study Ready unit, directly relates to a student’s chosen core subject’s assessment items, thereby assisting them in reaching the required academic standard. Individual assistance in areas of particular need is provided as required.
