Study skills: note-taking

The University of Bolton Library have a wide range of research and study resources available to help you.

Note taking is an essential part of study. It helps us to make connections and associate topics together whilst we learn from what it is we are taking notes about.

You might use a notebook, a word processer on your computer, mind-mapping software, or audio recorders to help you make notes, each person has their own preference based on their learning modes, so don't worry! As long as you are making notes and using them to revise and refresh the knowledge you have learned or observed then you are on the right track and developing good study habits.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
