SummerSkills@GRE - helping you move confidently into your next year of study!

It’s easy to forget that each new year of study requires you to develop new skills and build on previous experiences. SummerSkills@GRE is tailored to equip you with essential tools to enable you to move confidently into your next year of study.

Each 2-day course has been designed to help you transition from either:

  • Level 3 (foundation year courses) to Level 4 (1st year of undergraduate study)
  • Level 4 (1st year of undergraduate study) to Level 5 (2nd year of undergraduate study)
  • Level 5 (2nd year of undergraduate study) to Level 6 (3rd year of undergraduate study)

What the sessions will cover

Level 3 to 4 Level 4 to 5 Level 5 to 6

What skills do I already have?

Finding and evaluating key resources


Identifying issues and arguments

Using sources to support your argument

How to write critically

Critical Thinking

Critical evaluation of material for academic purposes

Reflection and evaluation of own responses to tasks


***Sadly, due to lack of student numbers, the level 3 to 4 sessions have been cancelled. If you are a level 3 to 4 student, please feel free to sign up for level 4 to 5 sessions and/or to come along to one of the drop-in sessions***

You can expect a variety of activities and support that will cover the essential academic and information skills to help you feel ready for the challenges ahead.

Please note: you are registering for a two-day course; you will be expected to attend on both days.

These courses are repeated at each campus: Greenwich, Avery Hill and Medway.

We do not have a specific session for postgraduates. However, feedback from Masters level students has indicated that some of our sessions have content which may be appropriate. You are more than welcome to sign up to these sessions as well as attend drop-ins.


Bookings will close at midday on Friday 21st June.
