Online technology bootcamp

Most people know they will encounter many academic skills that are new to them as they start their university journey, but there are also many technology and computer based skills that students don't realise they will need. The Tech Bootcamp series of sessions that run at the start of each semester are there to help students learn these skills. All students are encouraged to attend one session for each of the topics covered, as they will involve information about things you will be required to complete for your assessments each year.
