Discover how you learn

Explore your learning preferences to improve your work and get the most out of your time studying

Your learning is in your hands at uni, and you choose to learn in the way that works for you. Understanding how you prefer to learn will help you decide what and how to study.

We all learn differently. Some people prefer to learn by writing things down or drawing diagrams, while others prefer to listen to information or act out tasks. Most of us use a mixture of learning methods for different situations.

Take our quiz below to find out more about how you prefer to learn and get the most from your studies. But don't feel you're pigeon-holed by the results of the quiz. Coming to university is about learning to do new things and experiencing new things. And how you learn at university may be different to what you've been used to before.
