Unistart is a free two-day course that has been running at JCU for 20 years and improves retention and success rates of new students.  Experienced students and staff will help you with your transition to university life and provide additional advice and tips not covered in O Week.

Unistart training is fun and interactive and aims to reduce anxiety levels by providing simple insights into academic writing, learning styles, time management, study skills, types of classes, and learning technologies in a supportive environment.  You will also meet new students and lecturers in the same course.
