Become UCC Ready

Completing a QQI/FE Level 5/6 course is a great way to build up the academic skills that are required to be successful.  


The MSO believe that prior understanding of what academic skills you require (and when you will need them) is a real benefit. We have listed some of them below for you to investigate further.  


We have a student resource in UCC - The Skills Centre. Click HERE to have a look at a short video that explains what the Skills Centre can do for you. 


The following are the main skills areas that you should familiarise yourself with: 

  • Academic Listening  
  • Note Taking  
  • Academic Reading  
  • Academic Writing  
  • Time Management
