Get Set

Get Set is a short but popular study skills course. This course is offered free to all students who have enrolled in a programme at BTI. It is an optional course, and is designed to help those who may be nervous about studying at tertiary level by providing skills and practice for many of the tasks required in BTI programmes. Although it is targeted at year one students who are about to embark on their studies, it is also available to students at any year level who wish to brush up on their study skills.

 

If it has been a while since you left school, or if you are anxious about how you will cope with    writing essays or understanding the APA referencing system, it is well-worth coming to Get Set. An important side-effect of the course is that it provides an opportunity to connect with other students who are in a similar situation.

Topics covered include:

  • Writing essays
  • Referencing
  • Paraphrasing
  • Critical reading
  • Note-taking
  • Time management.

Contact Academic Support to take part in even just one of these sessions.

What is Get Set?

Get Set is delivered onsite or online and normally runs for three days before year one programmes begin. Students need to be available between 9am and 3pm on each of these days.

Actual dates are outlined in the key date documents for each programme.  

Once you have enrolled in a programme of study at BTI, you can register for Get Set by emailing your programme administrator. It is important to do this promptly as numbers are limited and available on a ‘first in, first served’ basis. 

If you are concerned about your level of study skill, you should consider the six-month New Zealand Certificate in Study and Career Preparation.
