Key skills such as communication, numeracy and literacy are vital to a good all-round student experience. They help students make the transition from school to university, cope with academic work, enjoy extracurricular activities and enhance their career prospects.
UCL provides a number of resources to develop these skills for taught and research students. A dedicated Personal and Professional Development website has been designed to help taught students and their personal tutors plan and record their skills development in a systematic way.
The Personal Tutors website also gives staff help on key skills development.
UCL introduced the HEAR system (Higher Education Achievement Record) to new undergraduates in the 2011-12 academic session in order to provide more detailed information about a student's learning and achievement beyond the traditional degree. Activities such as sports participation and leadership of clubs and volunteering will develop students’ key skills and be recorded on their HEAR.
