Transition to higher education is widely recognised as a time that can be difficult for many students. The EXCELerate program has been designed to assist students with the academic side of the transition process.
The Student Learning Centre (SLC) offers three ways for commencing students to access the EXCELerate information:
1. Two-day program
Commencing students receiving early-round SATAC offers will be sent an invitation in the mail to attend a two-day program held on 24 and 25 July 2013. Places in this program are limited.
Students attending this program will enhance their understanding of academic expectations and become familiar with the campus, its facilities and services on offer. They will also have the chance to meet and work with other commencing students which will help them to develop a social and academic network at Flinders.
2. Individual EXCELerate lectures
The SLC will run a series of lectures covering the core academic content of EXCELerate during the first week of semester 2. Commencing students who are unable to attend the two-day program should attend these lectures. There is no need to book.
Venue: Lab 4, Central Library
