    When making the transition to studying at degree level, students will be challenged to think in new and unaccustomed ways, with different study practices than they have used before. Embarking on any degree involves a step-change in a student's approach to learning, but knowing what's involved and appreciating why certain learning strategies matter can help you make the most of the experience. This series aims to help you realise what's expected of you as a learner if you decide to start on a childhood degree course. Rather than focusing on the content of childhood degrees - courses are too varied for that - it highlights the processes which underpin successful learning at this level. Each part will outline effective, and ineffective, ways of going about study, giving you ideas for what to do and things to definitely avoid. You should use these strategies alongside the actual material being studied on your specific degree.
