Welcome to NT Academy

Confident lifelong learners

Success with Study Skills is an e-Learning course for university students to improve their study skills. The online resource investigates note writing strategies and explores study skills techniques to help shape confident, independent learners. 

Created with specialists

Collaborating with study skills and assistive technology specialists, who support undergraduates with specific learning difficulties, we have created Success with Study Skills to guide students in identifying and implementing effective study techniques suited to their individual learning style.

Study skills for everyone

Success with Study Skills is available for free to all students who receive Notetalker Pro through their Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA). The course is also available to students who would like to develop their study skills, but do not receive DSA funding for Notetalker.
