Head into Brookes

Events and resources to help you get off to the best start at university

Between now and when you begin your university course, a range of events and resources are being planned to help you get off to the most informed and confident start. 

The Head into Brookes programme begins with an online self-starter course which is detailed below, followed by a series of webinars at the beginning of September where you can meet students and staff before you arrive at university and get answers to some really common questions. Finally in Induction Week, the Centre for Academic Development will be hosting a day of live events on campus to which everyone is welcome.

We have created this self-guided course to help you navigate the transition to university study and life. It includes videos, quizzes and current Brookes students sharing advice based on their experiences.

The course will help you:

  • identify the skills and qualities you bring to Brookes
  • understand what you need to be successful at university
  • define your goals and how to start achieving them.

There are four sections to work through, and it should take you no more than an hour so why not do it today?
