Adult Learner Study Skills Guide

Adult Learner Guide

Congratulations on your decision to return to education. Learning is a lifelong pursuit and this in an important step in a journey of greater personal development and growth. You are joining the increasing numbers of adults who are re-entering education to improve their knowledge and skills for future education and employment options.

While returning to learning is exciting and rewarding, it can also be challenging. Adult students bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to their studies and to become successful independent learners they require effective study skills. We hope this Adult Learner Study Skills Guide, which contains many tips on managing your learning effectively, will be of benefit to you as your pursue your course of study.

The Regional Educational Guidance Service (REGSA) aims to provide an independent, confidential and free educational and career guidance service to adults.

They offer a service which is:

  • Friendly

  • Independent

  • Confidential

  • Free of Charge

They can provide:

  • One to one guidance consultations

  • Information sessions to community groups

  • Careers and education presentations and workshops

  • Networking with community, voluntary & statutory organisations

Informal supports (eg. course leaders, the Students’ Union, other class mates, other members of clubs and societies) often play a big role in supporting all students at WIT.

We would advise you to get as involved as possible, talk to those around you if you have any queries, ask questions of your course leader or another lecturer who you feel confortable talking to.
