The exercises you will encounter are aimed at both full time and part-time further education students of all ages and will test your perceptions and knowledge of higher education, and your motivation for study at this level. They will also be of use to those who have a different educational background and/or a break from studying. The exercises will engage you with many of the issues and skills for learning that first year HE students can find challenging - and invite you to think about your own reasons for studying at this level.
