Tips for 1st time university students.


Practice self-care.

Students old and new will tell you tell you that university will be the most exciting yet challenging time of your life. It is critical for your own health and well-being to prioritise self-care.

Establish yourself in a routine that works for you. Your routine should include being physically active, and allow you to make strong social connections with faculty and students. Balancing study, being physically active and relationships in a way that suits you is the crucial first step in transitioning to university.


Be informed on verification.

It is important to sharpen critical evaluation skills when consuming online information. Verify the credibility and reliability of sources, fact-check claims, and be aware of the potential for misinformation or fake news. Neglecting to reference or the fabrication of someone else’s work could land you in hot water.
