We recognise the importance of preparation for University study and STUDY LINK is designed to really kick-start your studies. We've designed a STUDY LINK course specifically for you, to assist in the transition from TAFE/VET to university study.
And, what’s more, they’re FREE if you’re enrolled as a Commonwealth supported student at CSU, and not too expensive if you aren’t!
The aim of this subject is to provide TAFE/VET students entering the University with background and skills required for successful study. It is recognised that the transition to this new study environment requires an understanding of the key differences in systems and expectations so that students can begin their university studies with confidence. It designed for students from the Australian VET sector and is delivered via a face-to-face workshop.
Students can study this subject by attending a two-day (week-end) workshop at either Parramatta, Port Macquarie, Orange or Wagga Wagga.
This subject will cover the following topics:
• Academic expectations
• University Culture and Structure
• Support Systems to help you
• Reading and Writing Skills necessary for University study
• Learning to Think Critically (a very important skill)
• On-line Learning Strategies
Through this subject, students will make contact with staff at the University as well as meet other students facing the same challenges. ‘Transition from TAFE/VET to University’ will allow students to engage in independent and collaborative learning to assist them to understand the differences between the TAFE/VET and University sectors. It will also enhance their academic skills to prepare them for their future studies.
