Most courses will involve some form of working together in groups for a project or assignment. You may be put into a group by your lecturer, or you may be able to choose your own groups.

Getting the basics right at the beginning will help to keep your group on track, enabling you to work to everyone’s strengths and have an enjoyable experience.
