If you’re daunted about those first few weeks of university study, you’re not alone. We know it can be tough making the leap from school, home or the workplace.
Perhaps you need to brush up on your skills after the break and could use another introduction to the basics of uni study.
Say hello to the One Step Ahead program: a crash course in all things academic.
But get in quick – places are filling fast!
One Step Ahead: what is it?
Academic writing, essay structure, avoiding plagiarism and using feedback are among the topics covered during the One Step Ahead program.
Student Learning Associate Lecturer Janet Muller is one of the facilitators for One Step Ahead and says it’s mostly first year student who join the program. But she says it’s also a good opportunity for current students who need a bit of a “refresher” before classes start again.
“Do this course and you won’t be so terrified when you get to your first assignment and lecturers mention things like referencing,” Janet says.
It’s learning to reference correctly she believes is one of the biggest causes for stress among new university students.
“You’ll also learn how to paraphrase, quote and summarise, and learn how to avoid plagiarism”, she says.
