Synopsis

There are moments in everyone's degree when you are expected to do something unfamiliar and daunting - present a seminar, go on a fieldtrip, create a wiki page, lead a lab team - and how to do it or what to expect is unclear. Studying at university requires a different approach from studying at school and this book explains this transition. Packed with practical hints, study tips, short cuts, real-life examples and careers advice, this book will prove invaluable throughout your geography, earth science or environmental science degree.


Designed for all geography, earth science and environmental science students, this book provides guidance on:




  • time management and effective research

  • constructing essays and creating arguments

  • giving presentations confidently

  • undertaking fieldwork and laboratory work

  • avoiding plagiarism and citing references correctly

  • using e-technologies such as blogs and your university's VLE

  • online assessment and peer feedback.



This guide also explains the role of the academic and how it differs from that of a school teacher, and prepares you for the world of work by showing how the skills you learn at university today can be used in your career choice of tomorrow.
