The concept of SI is to meet with the new students and have general discussions in order to gain deeper understanding about the topics. Through our SI session we motivate and encourage the students to take pride in what they are studying and guide them in the right direction. As second-year students, we are able to show with confidence that it is indeed possible to excel in their studies. We are ready to lend a helping hand, we have the experience and are able to give new, different perspectives on the course. Additionally, we truly believe that SI is a great asset to students and can help them achieve great results.
The sessions take place on campus where we book rooms every week or fortnight. We were over the moon with our first meeting when around 40 students took part. It was a great start and we hope that our future sessions will continue to have high levels of involvement. We are available via Facebook where we post important information and where the students are welcome to contact us at any time; and of course welcome spontaneous chats on Campus. We also work side by with the course leader, program administrator and SI coordinator who assist us with the organisational aspects of holding and running the SI sessions.
