Life Skills Modules are University Core Modules for all first-year and first-semester students at Taylor’s University. They set the stage for students to start right and to be equipped with personal and social competencies in order for them to thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. 

These modules aim to engage not only the students’ heads and hands but also their hearts. As the first university in the region to formally implement a syllabus on Emotional Intelligence, Taylor’s aims to help students develop a competitive edge, and be well-adjusted, purpose-driven and employable individuals in the 21st century.

The first module, Life Skills for Success and Well-Being, focuses on the skillsets of Self-Awareness and Self-Management.
