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 at QLS 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.
