When you first start university, it's normal to not know anyone and to feel uncertain about where to turn. Our program gives you that kick start before classes even begin.
The VU Kick Start Program is delivered over two workshops (on two different days).
In Semester 2, 2020, the Kick Start Program will be held on Wednesday 22 July and Friday 24 July, 10am–12noon. You must attend both days.
The workshops will be conducted remotely on Zoom.
The workshops involve small groups of students, with a similar format to standard classes, incorporating blended learning components on the same platform used across the university – VU Collaborate.
The program teaches you about building your uni network – that is, connecting with and gaining the support systems, knowledge, and people who are essential to your success and happiness at VU.
This semester, Kick Start will be remotely delivered using Zoom, giving you experience with what your remote classes will be like.
The workshops will focus on three areas:
- building your university support networks
- fostering confidence in academic success
- increasing your familiarity with how classes work.
The program is free!
