Preparing for University

If you're looking at this page you are likely to already have a place at USW, or perhaps we are in your shortlist. Either way, we want to help you prepare for university before you start and so have put together these pages to aid the transition. 

You will find some information and advice about what to expect when you are here, and some tips on how to get ahead so you're well prepared before you get swept up in the whirlwind of the first term!

We in the Progression team have also put together pages once you start your first year, and for each year you progress on your student journey.

Good luck on your new adventure!

All about what it is like to be a student, what to expect, and addressing common  myths.

 Top tips from students, and what you can do to get a head start.
