Get what you need: personal development plan
No one feels confident about all areas of academic and student life – and your needs will change as you progress through your studies. It's normal to want to find out more about different aspects of support and to make the most of the services available to you, as and when you need them – which is where the Personal Development Plan (PDP) comes in.
We will ask you to complete your Personal Development Plan at the start of term, as you’re settling in at LSBU. This will help you consider your goals, aspirations and what you want to achieve, help you identify your strengths as well as areas that you want to develop, and direct you straight to resources that can support you.
