The How-to Series
This course is designed to help you get the skills you need for your next educational step, from understanding how to write critically (which you will definitely need at university) to how to create an art portfolio. Not everything will be relevant to you in this series, so we encourage you to look at the topics that you think will. If you know you’re not going to study art for example, you wouldn’t look at how to create an art portfolio. There are multiple topics which may be important but you don’t realise it until you start your course, don’t fret as you can always revisit this module.
The How-to Series has been created by HEON, with contributions by our various partners which are mainly universities and colleges.
In September you might be moving onto a college or sixth form to start your A-Levels. It can seem quite daunting moving to this next step, so we’ve prepared a handy guide to help you with this! Don’t forget to check the other resources on the website including tips on managing your workload and time, writing critically, and many more. In this How-to module, we’ll take you through: What to pack in your bag What to wear How to work backwards from your deadlines How to work backwards from a deadline
