This article concentrates on the Study Skills Management strand of the TPP7120 Studying to Succeed course in the Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) at the University of Southern Queensland. Upon successful completion, TPP provides direct entry to a USQ undergraduate program. Due to the content of the program, it has the ability to actively engage participating students in transformative learning whilst successful completion increases the students self confidence. TPP 7120 is a scaffolded two credit course which serves as an introduction to academic communication and study management skills through the teaching of generic academic and study skills. TPP is delivered online and by distance mode and is also delivered face to face on four campus sites in a collaborative facilitating framework. Students also have the opportunity to request hard copy materials and resources. There is an active online social forum which deals predominantly with questions relating to the course.
