Students graduating from the school system into the higher education sphere find themselves in a totally different environment. There is an air of informality and freedom associated with institutions of higher education compared to the more regimented school life. Here, students learn to be more independent as they develop the self-discipline required to meet their academic goals while enjoying their final years before heading into the workforce.
For students, such changes can be exhilarating yet overwhelming.
In this new world, they are exposed to the assorted activities associated with tertiary life. These experiences begin with having to familiarise themselves with the enrolment and on-boarding processes, through to the scheduling of classes and discussion groups, and having to adapt to different teaching styles.
