An ideal way to get ready to study at uni!

If you’ve got TAFE or VET experience or haven’t studied formally for a long time, this face to face workshop is the perfect way to get you ready for university.

You’ll spend an intensive two days with your subject coordinator getting to know how university study works and learning all the skills you need to kick off your university course on the front foot. Plus, you'll meet fellow students who are preparing to embark on the same journey as you, so you'll be able to share experiences, knowledge and ideas for the future - you may even meet students enrolled in the same degree as you!

Topics covered across the two days of this workshop include:

  • academic expectations and university culture
  • academic literacy and language
  • effective assessment preparation
  • information literacy
  • online learning skills and processes
  • organising yourself and your time
  • reading and interpreting information
  • teaching and learning at university
  • theoretical, critical and reflective thinking
  • university structure and support systems.

There are no pre or post workshop activities to complete for this subject, and you will receive your workshop materials at the start of each day of the workshop.

Please note: if you can’t attend a face-to-face workshop, SSS086 Transition to Uni Study is an alternative online subject.
