Think Human: Mind the gap

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Harcourt Hill Campus


What is it like to make the jump from school to university?

Recent research suggests that new university students feel like tourists in a new country. They are learning the new language of academic terminology, the new currency of marking, the new geography of the campus and even new laws of university policy.

This lecture will consider how universities can support new students as they embark on this life-changing journey.
