Transition Workshop for students going to Glasgow Caledonian University
Students who have accepted an offer to Glasgow Caledonian University (firm or insurance) will be invited by GCU to attend a full day transition workshop on campus to find out what student life will be like.
In these workshops you will get the chance to work closely with mentors, find out what is expected of you and meet your future classmates!
It will also include:
- A look at programme and module handbooks
- Timetables from the past year and the work that will be expected from you
- Lectures, Seminars, Tutorials – what is the difference between them and what is expected in each of them
- Tips on note taking
- An introduction to critical thinking, which is really important at university!
- Reading for academic purposes – a look at reading lists and a journal
- Look at an essay written by a GCU student
- An introduction to referencing
- And finally, a tour of the campus and all its features.
So watch out for your email invite coming into your inbox over the next few weeks!
