Course Description

Diploma in Study Skills – Level 3

Global Edulink


Not every student knows the art of studying and so struggle with their studies in school. It is not because they are not intelligent, but rather because they don’t know how to study correctly. Studying is also a technique that you can learn. And this is what the Diploma in Study Skills – Level 3 course aims to do for students. The course is designed to give students the right skills to learn and retain information. Students may find themselves becoming frustrated with school work, because they are unable to cope with the amount of studying they have to do. The Diploma in Study Skills – Level 3 course will simplify the art of studying school material. Gone are the days of cramming over books for hours on end, and yet not remembering one thing by the following morning.

The course will cover key features on learning through visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning, note taking, prioritsing and studying from books. Additionally, students will learn a general study strategy that can be applied to all their learning material.

The Diploma in Study Skills – Level 3 is an in-depth course that will give students effective tips and studying strategies to apply in real-world scenarios. Get more work done in less time. Improve your studying skills by identifying common problems. Learn how to overcome study problems, and manage your workload so that you can develop effective time management skills.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Global Edulink to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
