How to Study at University

Practical tips and general thoughts on how to study at a Western university


This site is written by Terry Greatrex who has taught at the Eastern Institute of Technology in New Zealand, the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China, Xi’an JiaoTong Liverpool University, Suzhou, China and Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan. I hope this blog will be interesting and useful for any students, but especially those who are not native speakers of English, who are studying or preparing to study at a Western university.
