Reading at university is not just about understanding what a text says.

One of the most common criticisms lecturers make of their students is that their reading is not critical, or analytical enough. In this session, we will look at how to critically engage with your reading, and how to develop the skills that will help you get the most out of your studies – and the best marks.
