Skills audit

There are many skills you need to be successful at university and it may not be immediately obvious what they all are. Some you will already have, but it is worth considering what you need to develop as soon as possible so that you make the most of your time at Brookes and reach your full potential. Our academic skills audit is not only a detailed list of the skills needed to be successful at university, it also provides links to where you can find more information and support.
