Top 5 skills needed for University Study

Students graduate from high school, but do they have the skills to succeed in university? Photo credit: Caleb Woods

A recent survey of current university students showed the following life skills as being the most important for a student to transition from secondary to tertiary education.

  1. Self-discipline/motivation

  2. Organisation

  3. Learning Approach

  4. Time Management

  5. Collaboration

In my opinion they've done pretty well, but it was interesting some of the skills that were mentioned but did not quite make the Top 5:

  • Self Management

  • Resilience

  • Critical thinking

  • Curiosity

My experience is that resilience and self-management are right up there and are also skills that will be vital when transitioning into the workplace.

How do you think these students went? Would you include anything different?
