Flying Start: Settling into your higher education studies

‘It’s really good to know there will be support’ (Flying Start attendee, 2020)

Every year, the B&FC Higher Education Learning Mentors run Flying Start workshops to help higher education students get ready for the next step on their study journey.

Our half-day Flying Start workshops include guidance on skills needed for higher education, informal group discussions and resources to take away. 

Each Flying Start session will comprise the following: 

  • The basics of academic writing & referencing 
  • Understanding expectations of higher education 
  • How to use the skills you already have 
  • Organisation / time management / motivation 
  • Opportunity to speak with team members from Student Union, Careers, Finance, the Learning Resource Centre, Digital and Student Support & Wellbeing. 

All students who have applied for a B&FC higher education course, plus those students who are moving up to level 5 or 6, are invited.
