This new course, which is currently under development, will be piloted in the summer of 2016 in time for Academic session 2016/17. Incoming undergraduate students will explore the key skills that are necessary for success at university and will engage in online tasks while hearing authentic student experience from a diverse range of current students. Students will be introduced to academic skills while orientating themselves around university life and university services.
