First year students attend three meetings in their first year of study. These will occur in Week 1 of Autumn Session, and Week 1 and Week 13 of Spring Session.
The Week 1 Autumn Session meeting allows the student contact with an Academic Advisor within the School. The subjects the student has selected will be the main topic. This is also an opportunity for students to ask questions as they commence their studies.
The meeting in Week 1 of Spring Session will be a follow up of the first meeting. Discussion will centre on the first session results and any adjustments made to the enrolment.
The Week 13 Spring Session meeting concentrates mainly on the proposed course plan. This plan 'maps out' the student's studies for the remainder of their course. The plan takes into consideration strengths and weaknesses, pre/co-requisites, course rules and the student’s career intentions. Adjustments can be made to this plan, however, these decisions should always be made in conjunction with advice from the Academic Advisor.
