Student Toolkit

Student toolkit

First year transition is complex. Students have to organise their own learning, manage their new study & social schedules, build new friendships & social networks and adjust to the requirements & responsibility of college styles of learning & teaching. SESU hopes to ensure effective transition by supporting students in progressing to the appropriate course, settling into college life & succeeding as higher education learners. Initiatives to enhance transition include a number of talks including transition to third level education, health, wellbeing & resilience, nutrition, living in Dublin and the big smoke.
