Description

This course is part of a series of student support courses that the Teaching & Learning Centre has put together for students. These Student Support (SS) courses contain tips and recommendations that we believe will be useful in students' learning at UniSIM.

The use of iStudyGuide is integral to the learning experience at UniSIM. In particular, it serves as one of students' first point-of-contact with the courses in their programmes. This course guides students on how to manage their learning through the iStudyGuide.
