Regional / Commons Time comes to your regional Campus to help First Year students ace Uni

Are you a first-year student looking for a bit more guidance to navigate the all-important start to Semester One?

We’ve got the answer: Commons Time.

This program is brand-new to Shepp and is going to make your Uni life that little bit easier.

What is Commons Time?

Commons Time is a program for first-year students (sorry everyone else!) designed to support your transition into university life. 

It’s all about making the student experience that bit lighter and brighter, by bringing together students in similar disciplines to building connections with peers and staff, develop interdependence and answer the age-old question: ‘What does it mean to be a university student?’

Come along and meet your Commons Time facilitator and a discipline academic, both of whom will be able to help with any question you might have about your course so far.
