Essential Communication Skills

Learn how to communicate effectively at university!

Communication is key to successful study. It’s how you share ideas, collaborate with others, and write about your research. From listening to and interacting with your fellow students, to writing in a way that gets your findings across with precision and style, communicating effectively is an important skill to master.

In this subject you’ll be introduced to critical communication skills and learn how to engage with different study materials. You’ll learn to work with and communicate with a range of people in a variety of ways.

Topics include:

  • active listening
  • multimodal communication
  • reading for meaning
  • speaking and presenting
  • writing for university.

As with all of our Study Link preparation subjects, you will access all of your learning materials online, as well as having help and guidance from a dedicated subject coordinator for the duration of your Study Link term.
