University 101 Course

Starting university is exciting, and we want to make sure you are prepared to thrive in your new academic environment. To ease this transition and help you build the necessary skills and connections for a successful York experience, we are offering Fundamentals of Learning: University 101.

What You’ll Learn

Fundamentals of Learning: University 101 is for incoming first-year students. This course will help you effectively meet the demands of university by developing both personal and academic skills – in reading, writing, note-taking, exam preparation, research and time management. Students will also have the opportunity to meet and network with peers.

This is a three-credit course, and course evaluation will be pass/fail.

How It’s Delivered

This course is delivered remotely. It involves pre-recorded one-hour lectures, which will be available to download just before the scheduled lecture time. All two-hour tutorials are live, interactive sessions guided by a faculty mentor and delivered through Zoom, so you can practise skills in real time with peers.

Tutorial attendance is mandatory, there are four tutorial options you can choose from when you enrol to accommodate a variety of schedules. As a result, this course is unable to fully accommodate students who are unable to regularly attend tutorials.
