Year 12 UTS U@Uni UniPrep Term 2 Session 1

Year 12 UTS UniPrep Term 2 Session 1

In the final year of the U@Uni Academy students take part in UniPrep. It’s a free tutoring and mentoring program, supporting our students to achieve their personal best and get ready to start uni.

Focus is on different areas throughout the year, from study skills to discovering what inspires students. And we listen — the sessions cover areas students need.

The tutoring sessions UTS run aren’t as formal as high school classes with smaller groups that are informal, flexible and tailored to students needs.

Session structure

In a typical tutoring session, students might work through past exam questions, share study tips, get help with assignments and homework, and discuss subject material with other students and with their U@Uni Student Ambassadors. The Student Ambassadors also share their personal experience of what it's like to start uni, how to choose courses or subjects, and other things students can expect if they choose to pursue uni.

There will be time during sessions where UTS Student Ambassadors can also help make sure students are meeting the graduation requirements to gain entry to UTS through the U@Uni Academy.

UTS ambassadors

UniPrep sessions include mentoring and academic support delivered by UTS ambassadors — current students at UTS. Students have met some of them during Year 11 U@Uni Academy activities. They’ve been chosen as role models for their attitudes and skills useful for success in the HSC and first year of university. UTS ambassadors can guide students in what UTS has to offer, and what it means to be a student at UTS.

Timetable sessions

Each UniPrep session runs for one hour. Sessions take place over three blocks during Terms 1, 2 and 3, for 12 weeks in total. Students also have a day on-campus at UTS.
