Welcome | Siyanemukela | Welkom | Re a go amogela First Year Seminar
(21 January – 1 February 2013)
The University of Johannesburg would like to welcome all its new first year undergraduate students!
An informative and compulsory First Year Seminar programme has been arranged for all our new first years, beginning with the Dean’s Welcome address, academic orientation to the Faculty, the Department and the specific programmes for which students have been accepted. Students will get to meet lecturers, receive their time tables and get to know their fellow students and the campus they will be studying on.
The First Year Seminar programme is available from this website: click on your Faculty. The programme will be mailed to students with their Registration letters. Students will receive their First Year Seminar programmes and their first year welcome gift during the Dean’s Welcome, as well as the invitation to attend the Official Opening and Welcome function on 1 February 2013.
The First Year Seminar is also when students will be introduced to the wide range of academic development and support services the University offers – the Library and Information Centres, Reading and Writing Centres, the Computer Facilities, Counselling and Career Development and the Career Resource Centres. These services aim to take our students from Good 2 Gr8!
Students will learn about the dedicated team looking after their safety and about the services available to them via the Health Clinics situated on each campus.
The First Year Seminar is not just about the very important academic aspects of student life: it is the time to join Student Societies, get involved in the many cultural activities, join one of the many sport clubs, join the gym or become a member of a Day House. What’s that, you say? You’ll find out during the First Year Seminar.
