A hearty welcome back to students and staff! There is a vibrant energy on the campus as people start trickling back and registration kicks off. We wanted to share one of most recent popular resources, the Guide for First Year Students. Although it is aimed at new students in the Humanities, we think this guide is a useful resource for any student at UCT or elsewhere! Let us know what you think! 🙂
‘Studying at University: A guide for first year students’ is intended to provide new students with the knowledge and skills required for coping with their studies and academic assignments at the university. This includes guidance on healthy learning habits, successful learning strategies, making the most of lectures and other learning opportunities and detailed advice around academic reading and writing tasks. The guide also provides specific information on various resources for students at the University of Cape Town.
The guide is available in full colour print from the CHED reception desk in the Hlanganani building for R45. You can also download an electronic version of the guide for free from the UCT OpenContent Directory!
