For many commencing students the adjustment to university life can be a bit daunting and at times, confusing. The  Academic Preparation Program (APP) has been designed to assist students with the academic aspects of the transition process.

There are two ways to access the APP information:


Lecture Series

A series of lectures will be held between Monday 23 February - Friday 27 February 2015. The program is free to all commencing students. Many of the lectures will be repeated throughout the week in order for students to adapt the program around their faculty-specific orientation activities.

A hard copy of the program will be sent out to all commencing students. The program will also be available to download here, in the coming weeks.
