STUDY LINK is a suite of skills and knowledge based subjects designed to prepare students for university study. If you haven't studied for a while or just want to brush up on your skills or fill in some knowledge gaps in a particular subject area, a STUDY LINK subject may be the solution for you. Most are short, self-paced on-line subjects but there are also weekend workshops available. You can start them at a time to suit you.
