At the beginning of every year, it is Skyline University Nigeria's culture to talk about some commitments, goals, and progressive actions that will guide students to achieving their set objectives. These goals are a continuation of our tradition of making resolutions and staying through with achieving them to boost our chances of having a better fulfilled year, 2023.
Although 2022 turned out to be closely related to 2021. Where 2021 saw a rise in vaccination against the COVID -19 virus and the end of virtual classes mostly. In 2021 Skyline University Nigeria was ranked 8th amongst the 47 private Universities that participated in the National Universities Commission (NUC), and 16th among 113 Nigerian universities that participated in the exercise.
Surprisingly, 2022 was a good year for many individuals and organizations alike. Skyline University Nigeria, apart from the accreditation of 11 programmes by the NUC, secured a permanent license from the Commission on 15th November 2022 to operate as a private university in Nigeria, executing qualitative university education on students to compete with their counterparts across the globe.
For students, however, apart from meeting their academic goals, we also shifted our focus to support them professionally. Hence the launching of the students' Brand Ambassador and Influencer programme. Starting with three students in 2022 and having 8 more on review for the same in 2023.
So, as the New Year begins, Here are a few punch lines that will help the students improve academic performance, develop soft skills, and be career-ready as an undergraduate.
Continue to Study Smarter
Quizzing yourself is a highly effective study technique. Make a study guide and carry it with you so you can review the questions and answers periodically throughout the day and across several days. Identify the questions that you don't know and quiz yourself on only those questions. Say your answers aloud and the result will be evident in your grades.
The world is a big network of connections. Some of them are of better quality than others, and your time on this earth is limited. Smart learners understand that they need high-quality connections — people around them who will inspire them, shake their worlds, and ask good and deep questions. We learn best when we are relaxed and have real friends and mentor around.
Try new things.
To be able to learn, our brain needs stimulation and then a good rest. Just look at how a small child explores the world, looks at everything with curiosity, then tries to put the pieces together and checks the taste. Later, the child “sleeps like a baby!” Smart learners possess that spark of curiosity and often try something new. Take part in some workshops or skill acquisition training and meet new people.
