Note to undergraduates: The transition from secondary to university level study is a stimulating challenge for new undergraduates.
To help make this transition smoothly and to encourage you to fulfill your potential here, Downing has arranged a series of practical sessions on writing, study and examination skills throughout the academic year.

The sessions will enable you to try out new approaches which will enhance the quality of your writing, and will improve your communicative abilities and confidence.
