First Year Seminar – Building Academic Success I

 

 

To: All first year undergraduate students

The First Year Seminar – Building Academic Success I

  • How can I get good grades and a good GPA?
  • What is academic success? What are the benchmarks in HKU and in the world?
  • What can I do if my first year results are not good?
  • Why were some students discontinued from their studies? Is there something we can learn from their experiences and do something to prevent this from happening to me?

Join the First Year Seminar – Building Academic Success I (course code: Ind006 of the CEDARS Induction Programmes 2011) if you wish to hear advices from Prof Anthony Yeh (Chairman of the Committee on Discontinuation), Prof Bennett Yim (Professor of the Faculty of Business and Economics) and Dr Otto Heim (Head of School of English) on the above questions. We have also invited several senior students to share with you their own experiences and tips on studying and making the best out of your university life.

The details of the Seminar are as follow:
Date: September 9, 2011 (Friday)
Time: 5:05 pm – 6:30 pm
Venue: Rayson Huang Theatre
(located between the Run Run Shaw Building and the Runme Shaw Building)
