Week 4: Study skills

The aim of this week is to develop students' awareness of the academic skills required to succeed and the support services than can assist them with those. Students are asked to explore the different types of assessment, and encouraged towards our online resources for helpful hints and tips. We also need to promote census date, with Semester 2 census date fallig next week, Thursday 31st August.
