An excellent resource for those wishing to explore their own preparedness to study, particularly overseas students looking to come and study in the UK, is ‘Prepare for Success’. The comprehensive website, which needs a reasonable level of English to navigate, has resources that explore the different types of Universities, courses, and patterns of study that might be encountered. There are also very clear and helpful ‘study guides’ on everything from how to undertake reading on the course to preparing for a seminar. The website is at http://www.prepareforsuccess.org.uk/
