The transition to tertiary studies (VET or Higher Education) will be quite challenging for some people. You may amongst other things: encounter new ways of learning, feel the personal impact of distance from family and friends, need to negotiate a new geographical setting, confront new social challenges and have lots of new concepts to understand.

Do not feel concerned or embarrassed. This is what lots of people feel when they embark on a program of study for the first time. If at any time you have concerns ask for help. Speak to your lecturer or visit one of the counselling staff. We are here to help and we want to see you succeed.
