[CHAT]: Transitioning to higher education

[ Edited ]

Year 12 is over, you've got your results and you're sitting there thinking: what happens now?

 

Lectures, tutorials, majors and minors - the lingo used in the glossy pamphlets can seem like jibberish at first.

Then there's the other worries you might be having: How will I make new friends? What do I do if I'm not enjoying my course? Is it possible to pay attention in lectures without falling asleep? (Hint: it's not Smiley Tongue)

So whether you're just starting out or you've been studying forever, join us here at 8pm AEDT on Monday 23rd January, or click reply to start the discussion now!

Hi everyone! As I'm sure most of you are aware, university offers went out recently, so we figured it would be a good time to discuss making the move from high school to...whatever's next, be that TAFE, an apprenticeship or university.

 

Going from the structured format of a 9-3pm high school schedule to higher education can be a big change, so we figured we'd ask our lovely community members to share a little about what you think the change might be like, what their pathways are (and from oldies like myself, what the process was ACTUALLY like, and see if we can't steal some handy survival tips Smiley Tongue

Re: [CHAT]: Transitioning to higher education

Lets start it off with the first question!!

 

In what ways do you think higher education will be/has been different to high school?
