Top Tips for Adjusting to Life at University It’s a whole new start. You’ve probably been planning it for ages. And now it’s actually happening. The beginning of your life at university. Feels a bit like a giant leap into the unknown? Don’t panic, keep your stress levels under control and follow some simple advice: Avoid information overload. There are some basic things you need to know when you start university, like what your schedule is, where your classes are, how much time you’ll have to spend studying. Take it slowly, focus on the important basics as you get your bearings, and all the other details will eventually fall into place.
Turn up. Woody Allen famously said that 80% of success is showing up. Remember that even now, when so much information is available on the internet and from so many sources, lecture and tutorial attendance is still very strongly linked to student success, so don’t miss out.
Get motivated and stay focused. Motivation is the spark that keeps you going even when
things get difficult. It keeps you curious in the face of tedium or complexity. Take things day by day but keep your eye on the goals you want to achieve, and remind yourself why engaging actively with university life will help you reach those goals.
Make contact. There are many places and people at college who can help you with all aspects of university life. Check out all the facilities and resources that can help you make the most of your time and maximise your chances of success. Look after your health and wellbeing. Make sure you develop habits that help you stay
relaxed and alert throughout your studies. Get plenty of exercise and rest. Eat healthily. Watch your alcohol intake. Take care of yourself.
The importance of friendship and supportive peers. Once you start to connect with
other students and establish good friendships, you’ll find that the early challenges of life as a student become much easier to tackle. Just as long as you learn to balance work and study with play and socialising, you’ll create the right ingredients for enjoyment and success.

This is the handbook of techniques, tips and exercises for students! It will help improve your grades, save you time and develop the skills that will make you stand out to prospective employers.
Seeking Part-Time Work Get your timing right. Apply early, and start thinking about who you can talk to well before term ends. Allow enough time for some face to face conversations with people who might be good connections.
Broaden your scope. Don’t rely on agencies, and certainly don’t rely on advertised positions. In a tough market you are more likely to find temporary work through word of mouth than any other method. Begin with personal contacts, not job ads. Start with people you know – find out about what organisations and sectors are doing, and what kind of skills they are looking for. Don’t follow the herd to the same old employers every student is approaching. Most jobs won’t be advertised, so ask around.
Offer a concise message. Learn how to present who you are and what you do in short, focused statements. Be ready to summarise your skills and know-how quickly, and say how you can help an organisation. How well does the first half page of your CV capture what you have to offer? Think about what employers really need. Most student CVs put a large emphasis on qualifications and academic learning, but what employers are looking for is very simple: skills, the right attitude to work, flexibility, and the ability to pick things up quickly. Make sense of your experience. Talk about skills you acquired through your studies and outside interests – organising projects, leading teams, communication skills. Talk about any skills you have picked up from any kind of employment or work experience. Do your homework. Even if it’s a temporary or holiday job, you will still come across as an
above-average candidate if you have found out something about the organisation. Use online tools to find out, but if possible also talk to people who have worked there before.
Keep on top of applications. Keep good records of contacts and applications close by at all times so you can respond confidently to phone calls out of the blue. Be ready to move fast if an interview or early start date comes up. Watch your online image. Maintaining a professional web presence matters, even when
looking for part-time work. Keep your social life and embarrassing photographs in a private space, and have separate public-facing pages for job seeking and work.
Sharpen up your interview look. Invest or dig out clothes that make you look sharp, but
still feel comfortable. Employers expect students to be scruffy, so buck the trend. At interview dress slightly smarter than the workplace dress code.

Survival Tips from Other Students C.A. Canton-Romein: “Learn to make mind maps! They are fast
for dictates, make it easy to connect and summarize information with the added benefit of everything being on one page.”
Katrina Walters: “Work out how many pages you need to read,
divide the total by five then read the resulting amount of pages per day and STICK to it. This leaves the weekend free.”
Katrina Walters: “Whilst reading, instead of just taking in information, write down what you under-
stand from the text in your own words. Research any remaining information you don’t understand from a different source then rewrite in your own words when you do.”
Emily Bunce: “Get a white board! All the important stuff can be written and re-written or made very obvious so you make sure you actually read your notes.” Yanan Li: “Keep track with the university website to ensure you are informed with every announcement.” Laura Cope: “Learn how to cook, home cooking is so much cheaper than buying ready meals and will make you a popular housemate.” Laura Taylor: “3kg Penne Pasta (approx £3). 60 servings, approxi-
mately 5p each. The perfect hunger solution.” NB. Add economy mixed herbs for a romantic meal or a dinner party.
Louise Banister: “Never ever go food shopping when you are hungry!” Laura Cope: “Personalise your room with photos and things from home. It will make your room seem more familiar and help with those homesickness pangs.” Catherine Willey: “To make sure you don’t feel too homesick plan visits home in advance (and
book train tickets) and remember home is never as far away as it appears at first. Plus everyone is in the same boat - scared and a bit lost!”

Dealing with Anxiety and Worry Adapted extract from Stop Worrying by Ad Kerkhof
Exercise 1: The vicious circle of worrying It’s natural to experience moments of anxiety or stress during university life when dealing with the pressures of assignments, exams, being homesick, juggling work or building new relationships. If you find yourself worrying, you may feel that you cannot stop. Worrying often makes us somewhat passive. You can get out of the vicious circle of worrying thoughts just by doing something to distract yourself. 1a l Look for contact with others. Have a chat with a roommate or telephone a friend. l Get active, or do some sports practise. For example, go for a bike ride or a walk, preferably with someone else.
l Take a nice shower, let all the worry be washed away.
l Read a good book, you will then be in another world.
1b l Make a list of distraction activities in your notebook.
Exercise 2: Positive worrying To avoid those feelings of unease and negativity it is important that we concentrate our positive qualities and skills. You will have more than enough of these.
l Close your eyes.
l Take a quality or skill which you are good at or in which you take a pride e.g. you stood up for yourself or someone else once, you are a good friend, you are a good cook, you can write or dance well, you are amusing, smart. l You then say to yourself: ‘I am good at . . .’ Perhaps you will doubt that you can hold onto this good feeling. So say it again: ‘I am good at . . .’ Now say it to yourself twenty times.
l Allow yourself to be proud for five minutes.
At night, are you unable to sleep due to all that worrying? If so, there are a number of things that could help you. Before going to sleep you could drink a glass of warm milk, read, listen to music. You could also put on something warm, for example, pyjamas or an extra T-shirt.

How to Write Great Essays Adapted extract from How to Write Great Essays 2/e by Peter Levin
Be an active reader. Interrogate books, chapters and articles. Your task is not to ‘read’ the book in the traditional way; your task is to find what is relevant to your needs and to capture it. Teach yourself to be a detective. Learn to think for yourself. Be ‘original’, ‘thoughtful’, ‘intelligent’, ‘analytical’ and ‘imaginative’. Taking notes and translating ‘academic-speak’. Resist any urge you might feel to copy out word for word large chunks of a book. Capture the method, observations, conclusions and key learning points. And don’t forget to note where you found them so you can refer back to them later.
Read around the subject. Get into the habit of finding and reading books by more than one author on the same subject and exploring the disagreements to improve your critical reading.
Feedback. There are four crucial feedback questions you can ask yourself: What did I do well? What did I not do well? How could I have improved the essay? How can I do better next time? And don’t forget to ask your tutor for feedback. Create an essay plan. In order to write a decent essay you need to have a plan. A plan, which you rough out at the beginning and refine as you go along, provides you with a structure for your essay. An essay plan is basically a list of headings: main headings and subheadings. Conclusions. They should be clear and incorporate the briefest possible summary of your discussion. Never, ever introduce new material in your Conclusions.
The process of writing. Fit your notes into your essay plan. See which of them belong under particular headings or sub-headings. When you have a rough idea where everything goes, you can start writing a rough first draft. Keep an eye on your word count and check regularly that you’re ‘on track’. Monitor your alertness and allow yourself time. There will be times when your head swims and you feel it’s all becoming a terrible burden. When this happens, take a break! Save your work frequently. Get into the habit of saving it every time you pause to think. Save the essay not only in your personal folder but also on a flash drive or email it to yourself.

Internet Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism Adapted extract from The Complete Guide to Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism 2/e by Colin Neville
How to avoid plagiarism (Chapter 4) Applying, analysing, criticizing or quoting other people’s work is perfectly reasonable and acceptable providing you always: l Attempt to summarise or restate another person’s work, theories or ideas and give acknowledgement to that person
l Cite your sources and present a list of references
l Always use quotation marks (or indent lengthy quotations in your text) to distinguish between the actual words of the writer and your own words l There are four situations when you do not need to reference sources a) When presenting historical overviews b) When presenting your own experiences c) In conclusions, when you are repeating ideas previously referenced d) When summarizing what is regarded as ‘common knowledge’.
Internet referencing tips (Chapter 9) There are four main principles or guidelines to referencing electronic sources.
l First, and this is common for all referencing styles, the citation should link with the full reference:
Citation: (Friends of the Earth 2005) This would then link to the full list of references (in Harvard style):
Reference: FRIENDS OF THE EARTH (2005). Corporates: corporate power. Available at http:// www.foe.co.uk/campaigns/corporates/issues/corporate_power/ [Accessed 13/12/2005]. l Tutors should be directed as closely as possible to the online information being cited and
reference, giving the complete URL addresses or digital object identifier (DOI) tags. l Ensure you show website addresses that work! Make sure you have copied them or pasted them in correctly. l Because sites do disappear without warning, it is wise to print out copies of sources used for citation purposes to show a tutor, if required.

Making the Perfect Presentation For most people, the prospect of having to speak to an audience is an intimidating one. However you can learn to control your nerves, and develop the communications skills and confidence you need to be a more effective presenter. Adapted extract from Perfect Presentations by Peter Levin and Graham Topping
Make sure that you really know what your brief is. If your teacher hasn’t made it clear to you what you are expected to do, you must ask. You also need to know how much time you are allowed for your presentation. Clarify your goals and objectives. How will you be assessed? In general, the criteria for assessing your presentation fall into two categories: Academic criteria, such as use of literature, understanding of subject, organization of material, and ‘Quality of communication’ criteria, such as audibility, visual aids and keeping to time.
Make your message memorable. It’s a good idea to grab your audience’s attention at the outset and grab it again each time you want to reinforce a point. Here are some suggestions:
l Begin by saying something arresting l Tell a story l Repeat important points
l Communicate your interest with the topic l Give your audience an agenda (‘route map’) l Have a neat, punchy ending
Consider using visual aids. For maximum audience-friendliness, it should be clear what each visual is showing, without any commentary from you. Your job will be to point out the significance of what the visuals show. Handouts. Decide what purpose(s) your handout is to fulfil and design it accordingly. Make your handout look good. It should be neat and tidy. Make friends with your audience. The more energy you are putting in to your presentation,
the more positive the body language and eye contact that you generate and elicit. Use confident body language and make eye contact confidently, and you will feel confident. That’s how it works!
Speaking with authority.
As a student, you are unlikely to be an authority on the subject on which you are presenting. However you can speak with authority and acquire respect by following these rules: Show that you have done your homework; Be organised; Cite your sources; Exercise care in making judgements; Tell your story.
The benefits of rehearsing. To give a really good presentation you must rehearse it. This will help you to give your presentation without having to think self-consciously about what you’re doing and to also get your timing right.

Demystifying Statistics Adapted extract from Statistics Demystified 2/e by Stan Gibilisco (©The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc) When you want to know what you’re reading, writing, or talking about in statistics, you must have some familiarity with basic mathematics, including set theory, number theory, relations, functions, equations, and graphs. Table 1-1 lists common symbols used in mathematics. You’ll encounter many of these symbols in statistics as well.
Here’s a Riddle: Can any set ever constitute an element of itself? At first you, might say “No, that’s impossible. That would be like saying that the Pingoville Ping-Pong Club is one of its own members. The elements are the Ping-Pong players themselves, not the club as a whole”. But wait! What about the set of all abstract ideas? That’s an abstract idea, so in some situations a set can behave as a member itself.
