Academic Skills for Future Students

Meet some of the QUT STEM High School Engagement student ambassadors as they share their experiences and talk you through tips and tricks to make the most of your first year at university.

This series of short videos will help high school students with some of the key academic skills they need to know upon starting university. These skills are also valuable while at high school and will set students up with useful foundation skills for study success.

Learning Note: We have also put together a student workbook that students can utilise on their own or in a classroom setting for teachers who would like to embed the videos and skills in existing curriculum activities.
