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.

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.
