Our approach to the first year experience is published as GRAD - Your guide to university success.
GRAD is a 58-page must-read guide for students adjusting to the dramatic transition from school to independent life at a university. Most students are not prepared for the new challenges and GRAD is designed to help students understand the many changes and adjust to the new demands and challenges they face.
140 000 printed copies have been distributed to South African students in 2017 thanks to the generous sponsorship of Capitec Bank and this essential guide is now available as a download – absolutely free of charge.
