We understand the first year of university is an important milestone in anyone’s life. It’s a bit like turning 18 or getting your drivers’ license – liberating and exciting. But as with any new beginning, students face different challenges and expectations.

To make the university experience as rewarding and enjoyable as possible, we have introduced two transition programs within the Arts Faculty:

Our First in the Family program is designed to help students adjust to the many differences that are part of university life, and to instil a sense of belonging

Ambassadors and Leaders: Our three-step PAL Program is run over three years, and offers students valuable leadership experience.
