Publication Date 9 Aug 2011
OverviewJust as we can talk about different cultures around the world, we can also talk about the culture of universities. This is usually called academic culture and refers to the attitudes, values and ways of behaving that are shared by people who work or study in universities. Academic Culture is a much-needed and immensely practical book which identifies these attitudes and values as well as the effect they have on student and lecturer behaviour. Designed for all students who are entering university for the first time, the new edition of this text will equip readers with a breadth of knowledge which will ensure the improvement of their academic performance.
