Most importantly new first year undergraduate students will meet fellow peers who'll be studying the same course! Registration in the FASS Mentoring Program secures you a place at Welcome Day!

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Writing Hub
The Writing Hub has units of study to help you with all aspects of the writing process. In our two junior units of study, WRIT1000 and WRIT1001, you will develop a clear writing style and a robust approach to academic argumentation. In our two advanced units of study, WRIT2002 and WRIT3001, you will develop excellent research strategies, effective oral presentation skills, and community-engaged writing practices.
The Writing Hub also provides drop-in sessions from 11am-3pm, weeks 4-13, in room 329 of the Old Teachers' College. Drop-in sessions are an opportunity for you to receive individualised feedback on your essay drafts and ideas. In the drop-in sessions, our peer writing mentors will help you invent arguments, refine your ideas and reflect on ways to improve your writing so you can engage your reader and reach your potential. No appointment is necessary – just drop in.
