Academic Skills at Southampton

Posted on: 7 December, 2009

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the University’s Academic Skills website, which is maintained by LATEU, comes up as the #1 entry when you search Google for ‘academic skills’. I don’t keep an eye on our ranking – but was just creating a sample screenshot about how students search for resources on the web.

If I had to say why we have achieved this ranking, it is because the materials provided are good quality and openly available for all to use. We regularly get emails from around the world asking if it is OK to use them – and we always say “yes, provided you attribute the University”.

(but if you search for ‘study skills’ we are only number 22 – so we won’t let it go to our head!)
