First year transition program

Starting uni is really exciting, but it is also a time of change - social, academic and personal. Regardless of whether you are coming from Sydney, interstate or overseas, putting time into meeting more people here on campus will be of enormous benefit to you throughout your studies.

The First Year Transition Program is the best way to feel a part of things when you begin, with a Transition Workshop before you begin and SLAM lunches (Science Link-up and Mentoring lunches) after you begin. Here you will get to know senior students, tutors and demonstrators, research staff and, most importantly, lots of other students doing the same courses as you.

What is the Transition Workshop?

The Faculty of Science introduced the Science Students’ Transition Workshop in 1997 to provide commencing students with an opportunity to meet other students in a fun and relaxed environment before they commence their studies. Since 1997, incoming students have enjoyed this great day, meeting other commencing students while discovering all they need to know before semester begins.

Who is it for?

The Science Students' Transition Workshop has two separate programs:
A workshop for commencing science students and a shorter evening session for their parents.
