Due to lack of effective study and learning skills, most leaving certificate students who enroll in degree courses in Ireland find it difficult to adapt to the vastly different higher education environment. Students find that the study strategies employed in secondary school don’t always work at the university level. For students to be successful in higher education, they need to acquire efficient and effective study, learning and professional skills (Tinto, 1994). In college, students need to become independent learners. They need to examine past experiences and make any amendments to their practices essential to surmount new challenges (Ritzen, 1996). Research has also shown that graduates do not possess the necessary skills required for full time employment (Blair & Robinson, 1995, Connelly & Middleton, 1996). In fact, it is often communication, problem-solving and interpersonal skills that distinguish those who are preferred for employment (Blair & Robinson, 1995). It is the responsibility of all higher education institutions to ensure that their students are equipped with the necessary skills that will not only assist them throughout their higher education but will also be of great benefit to them when they graduate (Marshall & Rowland, 1998).
