Description :
The Sussex Language Institute: Study Skills Web resource is provided by the University of Sussex and is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate international students studying in the UK.

The material is presented in seven main sections: 'Some Core Concepts' which includes principles of successful communication, critical analysis, and academic essays and conventions; 'Assessment and Tutors' which includes suggestions about the importance of feedback, the aims and usefulness of assessments, and advice on communicating with university tutors; 'Reading,' including note-taking, selective and critical reading, and understanding arguments; 'Preparing for Written Work' which includes advice on how to choose topics and/or essay questions, planning and brainstorming; 'Writing,' including advice on structure and grammar; 'Seminars' which includes frequently asked questions and information on effective seminar participation; and 'Examples and Exercises' which provides some samples of well-written undergraduate and Masters level work. There is also a section which provides links to other useful study skills websites.
