Introduction to University Series

Here's a video series that covers all of the basics new science students need to know. This was prepared for new students starting last term, but Term 3 2020 starters need to know the same stuff! We hope it will help you settle into university.

This 3-part series will introduce new undergraduate science students to university:

Part 1: The Basics

Part 2: A New Language

Part 3: People and Places
