Hello and welcome to this year’s Readiness for Academic Study Course. Please bookmark this page since the week’s activities will be posted here every Monday. In order to get things up and running before next week, your first task is to introduce yourself.

If you go to the forums and click on the Readiness for Academic Study 2019 one, you will see a post asking you to introduce yourself. I’ve added some questions to provide a rough idea of what you should be writing and I’ve introduced myself as an example. If you are already at YSJ and completed the course last year, then please get involved if you wish.

We would like you to make you aware that your interactions on this site may be used in a research project investigating transitions to Higher Education, which will be published at conferences, in journal articles and in blogs. Any information used will be made anonymous; no-one will be identified by name or contact details. You may withdraw your contributions from this research upon request from (your details) and this will not lead to any disadvantage in academic terms. Email addresses will be kept separate to recorded information and retained only for the length of the research project.
