The Tertiary Preparation Program is an online workshop run as two 2-hour sessions over two days. It is available to all postgraduate and undergraduate coursework students in the faculties of:

  • Science (SCI)
  • Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT)
  • Medicine (Med)
  • Health and Behavioural Sciences (HABS)

While the program is targeted at commencing students, continuing students who wish to refine and develop their writing and learning skills would benefit from participating.

Writing and studying in science and engineering presents specific requirements and challenges. Consequently, this program will explore features of effective writing in the disciplines. While a main focus will be on the standard lab report genre, features common to other report genres and how tables and figures can be incorporated effectively in writing and presentations will also be considered. The program will then consider how to study effectively in jargon heavy and quantitative courses, and discuss effective approaches for meeting these challenges. Finally, the program will look at student short answer exam question responses in these disciplines, and explore the features of strong answers.

While the program is targeted primarily at commencing students, continuing students who wish to refine and develop further their writing skills and approaches to learning would also benefit from participating in the program.
