UG Handbook - Managing your workload through independent study

Teaching at York is done by academic experts who will introduce you to academic subject areas, key concepts and outline your learning objectives. You are responsible for researching, studying and managing your own learning. You will need to plan your time carefully and be aware of timescales and deadlines for assessments, projects and exams.

Independent learning means you are expected to do the work involved to prepare for lectures, seminars and tutorials and to produce assignments and exams based on your studies.  You will have world-class facilities and resources at your disposal and fellow students with opinions and experience you can share your thoughts and study experience with.  So make the most of your time and the opportunities available to you. 

Your tutors and supervisor can advise and we have further support in place through the Academic Skills Community to help you gain any additional skills you might need with maths, academic writing, referencing, IT skills and languages.
