Event description

Description

Please sign up using your CRSId and University email, as only Jesus College students will be admitted to the session.

Jesus College provides a programme across the year to help Jesus College students to improve their academic skills. The idea is to help make the transition from secondary education to university studies go as smoothly as possible and to encourage all students to fulfill their potential here. While designed for undergraduate freshers, those in other years and graduate students may also benefit from the programme, and are most welcome to attend any of the sessions if there is space available.

We have arranged a series of practical sessions on academic skills throughout the year. Attendance at these sessions is strongly recommended, but the places are limited. These sessions aim to improve and hone all aspects of your work here at Cambridge, which will prove invaluable later on.

This session considers different approaches to reading for study. Improving your reading skills reduces unnecessary reading time and enables you to approach reading in a more focused manner, while approaching lists themselves in a selective way. We consider how you might increase your levels of understanding and concentration through some techniques to read with greater efficiency and effectiveness. The session considers a range of different reading skills.
