Welcome back to UP!

Posted on February 04, 2019

To all our senior students: Welcome back!

We hope you’ve had a great recess and are ready to start working on your studies again. We have some really cool things lined up for all UP students this semester, so keep an eye on your emails, LED boards, posters and UP’s official social media accounts for more information.

Remember to pay careful attention to the final closing dates for module changes, and to choose your modules wisely. Maintain a good semester average mark, and plan your time effectively. All of this will help you graduate on time.

If you’ve forgotten any of the basics of good academic practice, be sure to take a refresher course on referencing and plagiarism in the library. Download the UP Libraries app and you’ll have a world of information at your fingertips.

UP’s hybrid teaching and learning model helps you to always be ahead of your studies by finding extra notes, tips, resources and videos on ClickUP, so be sure to check up on that regularly. You will find an improvement in your results if you work consistently and use all the resources provided for your benefit.

Many of you may have had the opportunity to spend some of your holiday doing vacation work. We hope that you made the most of that valuable experience and were able to apply your knowledge and skills well. Remember that you need more than a degree to get a job, so be sure to enrol for our Ready for Work programmes, which will enable you to be a step ahead of other graduates in the field. You can easily register on ClickUP for these.

You will receive more information over the semester on these and other support offerings from UP, designed to enable each of you to live your best life and make a success of your studies and life beyond university.

Your success matters to us, so take advantage of all the extras UP offers to help you live your best life.

Have a great 2019!
