What to expect at uni!
Many students will come to university and within a short while settle in to the new learning
environment, join clubs, get involved in activities, make friends and get on with study towards their
degree. However, the transition to uni life is not always that easy for everyone! The following
information may help if you’re not sure about what lies ahead.
Difference between uni and school
New study patterns:
Secondary school study
Tertiary Study
The timetable accounts for every hour of the school day.
Lectures and tutorials take up part of the day. You must
plan your own long and short term timetables.
Two hours of school work requires about one hour of
homework.
For every one-hour lecture or tutorial about two hours of
private study will be necessary.
Teachers set and correct your homework frequently
(daily, weekly).
Assignments are longer but less frequent. They may be
set many weeks ahead.
Your have daily interaction with teachers.
Lecture groups may be large. It is up to you to approach
your lecturer or tutor if you are having difficulties.
Teachers guide your reading. Set texts are prescribed for
each subject.
You may be given a reading list from which you select, or
you may have to search for relevant material in the
library.
Reading only the set texts is often enough for essay
preparation.
Wide reading is essential.
Teachers may provide outline notes and will indicate the
most important ideas and information.
You will have to identify and make notes on the main
points in lectures and texts.
In essays, you refer to the set texts, but need not
acknowledge all the sources of your ideas and
information.
You must acknowledge all your sources. To avoid
plagiarism, you will need to learn referencing skills
(footnotes included references, bibliographies).
You learn a core of knowledge and reproduce it in your
reports, essays and examinations.
You need to:




memorise information
ask questions
examine evidence
think critically
In other words you are expected to develop your powers
of independent thinking.

Independent learning at university
University study
The main goal of university study is to become an effective learner. In order to do so, you must be an ‘independent
learner’ – someone self reliant in their learning and capable of individual thought. You have personal responsibility
for establishing and organising your own program of study.
Work at learning
Some characteristics of an effective learner:
• recognise that learning is a process that is ongoing and lifelong.
• recognise that learning is an active building up of knowledge and understanding, not merely a memorisation of
facts.
• actively connect new information to existing knowledge and previous experiences; prior knowledge and
experiences shape and give meaning to new knowledge.
• continuously reflect on and monitor their learning.
• work from a basis that learning is their own responsibility and that no-one else can do it for them.
Practical suggestions for becoming an effective learner
Practical suggestions to start you off on effective learning at university.
• Read a study guide (available in the Library or at all Monash University bookshops).
• Plan out and make a chart of your study activities, and make changes when necessary.
• Keep track of learning methods that you use, noting those which seem to be most effective and what aspect of your
study they were most effective for. Think about what it was that made these methods effective.
• Talk with others-students and teaching staff-about learning and study approaches. When you need information on
how to go about things, it's usually best to ask someone who has experience.
Am I well prepared for uni?
Some university units (particularly mathematics and science subjects) typically draw on and build on content knowledge
that is taught at secondary school. This will make your learning easier in that unit at university.
In general, you'll find that some content knowledge you covered at secondary school will link directly into your learning
at university, but this will not always be the case. If you find that you have some gaps in background content knowledge,
it's important to do something positive about the situation early in the semester, before it becomes a problem.!
Try text books (ask the unit coordinator to recommend one that's easy to understand), unit handbooks, specially
designed computer programs, university teachers, friends!
Communication is the key!
In the various means of assessment at university you are asked to communicate your understanding of the unit, in
written, spoken and/or practical ways.
Development in learning and communication skills is a lifelong experience-and it's never too late to make a big effort to
improve them. So build on accessing knowledge efficiently, selecting knowledge that is relevant and useful, examining
evidence or text critically and interpreting evidence or text in the light of important principles.

3.
Think about what sort of help you might need-for example, 'do I need some counselling about the course or
unit I've chosen?' or 'do I need to attend sessions on developing my study skills?' or 'do I need some help
with written or oral communication?'
Locate the help you think you might need through the Monash University website or by reading university
brochures and booklets and/or student handbooks for your unit.
You will find language and study skills assistance, course advisers, counsellors, disability officers,
Indigenous officers, financial aid advisers, housing advisers etc are all on campus to help you.

The Student Association is another source of help and advice. There are Student Rights officers to look
after your rights and to help with resources and activities. They can also provide welfare assistance if
needed or refer you to other services.
The Monash Transition Program
The Monash Transition Program, through Orientation, Host Scheme and its involvement with faculties, student support
services, and other areas of the university, aims to improve the transition experience of all Monash students so that you
have a more satisfying first-year. Useful information about the transition to university can be found at the Monash
Transition Program web site: monash.edu.au/adjusting/
Orientation
Orientation is your initial contact with the university. It involves your introduction to, and identification with, the university,
a specific campus, your course, units of study (subjects), university staff, and the start of transition. Orientation today
places greater emphasis on assisting first-year students with 'academic transition' during orientation.
In this time you will find all faculties take the opportunity to introduce you to the teaching methods and manner of
learning expected of you in the particular subject areas they offer. Orientation is a great way to meet staff and other
students before classes start and you'll feel more comfortable and start fitting in right away.
For campus-specific details, refer to your campus' Orientation 'What's On' guide and explore the Orientation website:
monash.edu.au/orientation
Student Survival Week
Student Survival week is conducted around Week 4 where there is the opportunity to seek out, access and utilise
information, facilities and resources that are available to you. It enables you to focus on issues that have arisen in the
first few weeks of university. On each campus, student associations focus on activities that suit your situation, such as
helping with a range of academic programs, social activities and independent living skills which helps you to adjust to
learning and have a more satisfying experience by gaining access to important information whilst having fun.
During Student Survival Week you will have the opportunity to discontinue from units of study prior to the census date
without being charged CSP or tuition fees, and having a 'fail' grade recorded on your academic record.
Take a guided tour and learn how to use the Library
Students at University are expected to use the library as a study resource. You will need to refer to books and
periodicals from the library right through your study program at university. University libraries are usually quite large
places and are sometimes difficult to find your way around. So it makes sense to become very familiar with the library
on campus as soon as you arrive at university.
Make sure that you sign up for library tours and classes during orientation - they are essential for helping you to
understand how to use the library effectively and efficiently.

Lectures and labs
Listening to lectures
Language of the lecture and lecture hints
When you are listening to a lecture, it is impossible to write down all the information presented. You therefore have to
make judgments about what information is important and whether to note it down. Think about the following points in
regard to your note-taking:
8
Your position in the lecture theatre
Don't be frightened of the lecturer. Sit close to the front, and look interested. You will hear and see better, and are more
likely to find yourself in the company of committed students.
The lecturer's use of voice/body language
The lecturer's use of repetition, a change of tone, meaningful pausing or an upraised finger, etc., may indicate important
content. Listen and watch for these signals.
Lecture language
A lecture is not a dictation exercise. You need to listen and make your own judgements about what you should write
down. The following hints however, may help you.
Argument structure
Words such as first, second, also, furthermore, moreover, therefore and finally indicate stages in the lecturer's
argument. But and however indicate a qualification, because a reason, and on the one hand and on the other hand
indicate a contrast.
"Signalling" words (used to indicate parts of the lecture)
Introducing the lecture: "I want to start by..."
Introduction of a main point: "The next point is crucial..."
Rephrasing the main point: "The point I am making..."
Introducing an example: "Take the case of..."
Moving on to another main point: "I'd like to move on and look at..."
A digression: "That reminds me of..."
Summing up main points: "To recapitulate..."

Utilise active listening
Active listening entails:
 thinking about the topic while you listen;
 asking yourself questions;
 relating the new ideas to things you already know about;
 evaluating the content of the lecture (not the delivery!);
 working out what you understand and what you don’t understand; and
 concentrating

Learning in labs
In many subjects in Science and Engineering, you will have to undertake experiments in a laboratory as part of the
course. This experimental work is fundamental in developing your understanding of the theoretical knowledge in the
subject and thus is integral to the coursework. Lab work also gives you practical, "hands on" experience in the use of
equipment and the experimental techniques in your field.
The lab work may consist of a number of tasks: preliminary work to be completed before the beginning of the lab, the
experiment itself, questions asked by the demonstrator at the end of the experiment to check that you have understood
the theory behind the experiment, and a lab report written either during the lab time or to be handed in at a later date.
You will be given detailed guidelines about what is expected in labs in particular subjects, but here is some general
advice about how to learn most effectively from the lab work.
Preparation for the lab
Read the lab notes a few days before you attend the lab session so that you can discuss any problems with the
lecturer. Become familiar with the theory behind the experiment by reading the relevant sections of your textbooks and
lecture notes.
Understand clearly what you are investigating in each lab.
If you are not sure about any aspect of the theory or the experiment, ask your lecturer to give you a brief explanation.
Complete any preliminary work set out in the lab notes. This work may include reading set chapters of your textbooks,
or doing some calculations or problems.
Make sure you know exactly what you are going to be doing in the experiment. Be clear about each step in the
experiment, the equipment which you will need to use and what data you will need to record. Perhaps make a short
'action list' to follow in the lab.
Be prepared for your lab lesson
Read lab notes or textbook
Do any set calculations or problems
During the lab
Arrive on time so that you can listen carefully to the demonstrator's explanation of the experiment.
If you are not clear about anything, ask your demonstrator. During the experiment, you can check with your
demonstrator that you are on track and getting reasonable results.
Be involved, ask yourself questions about what is happening and make predictions about what you will discover. Make
sure you can explain any unexpected results to yourself.
Note down any problems you have. You may need to discuss why you had these problems in the discussion of your
results in the written lab report.
10
Getting the most out of your Lab session.
Ask questions
Be on time
Be involved
After the lab
Clarify any important points you didn't understand by reading in your notes and books. Ask other students to clarify
these or ask your lecturer.
Revise - sit down and consolidate what you have learned (concepts and theory) from the experimental work.
After the session, consolidate what you have learnt.
Clarify points with other students or lecturer
Revise what you have learnt from the experiment

A typical day at uni
Engineering students usually need to attend approx. 20 hours of classes through the week, but are then expected to
undertake private study outside of class for another 28 hours per week (or 7 hours per unit) – nearly more hours than a
full-time job!
Classes can commence at 8.00am and continue until 6.00pm. Depending on your timetable, you may find that you
have a day (or days) with minimal time for a break between classes, in comparison with days where you may only have
one 1 hour class for the whole day. Your day will include a mix of lectures, labs and time to study or participate in
university activities. You may find that you need to approach a lecturer to seek some advice, will spend time working
with other students on an assignment or in a study group, undertake work in the computer lab and go to the library for
research or individual study as well. Don’t forget that there will be seminars and other extra-curricular activities like
clubs and societies meetings that you will go to, as well as time for lunch and catching up with friends.
The overall key to success is being organised and achieving a balance between student life and other personal
commitments such as part-time work, interests/hobbies and socialising!
Student experiences
Student: Faculty of Engineering
As in any situation where you are joining a new institution, making new friends and getting used to unfamiliar
environments were the most intimidating aspects of beginning uni. The sheer size and vastness of the campus is such
that there are less 'hang out' zones where you will inevitably find friends in between lectures, thus it's a great idea to
exchange timetables (or jot down gaps), arrange to meet people at cafes, etc. From an academic perspective, group
work is quite challenging because you not only have to motivate yourself, but also must stimulate others to sufficiently
get the job done.
The learning atmosphere is completely different to high school. Students are expected to learn more independently, and
often the large, impersonal lectures, serve only to introduce you to new material which you are then expected to
privately study. Most lecturers and tutors won't know your name, let alone your background, strengths and weaknesses.
Self-motivation is the key, as no-one will hound you to get the next requirement in, even if it contributes towards your
final mark. Engineering subjects are especially different to VCE subjects in that small, ongoing modes of assessment
are more typical instead of three large assessment tasks per subject. However, the examinations are the most important
facet of assessment and usually determine whether the student passes or fails.
11
Contrary to my initial beliefs, uni actually offers more support avenues than at school, but it is up to the student to seek
these services. Anything from study/career advice to sexuality discussions are available to students, so I recommend
you make the most of the help on offer. Depending on how locally you live to uni, I recommend getting a car or
organising car pooling with friends. In order to finance a car and entertainment expenses, it's a good idea to find a job if
you can fit it in. After a couple of months, I was able to reflect on my transition and feel as though I belonged at uni.
If I had any transition advice to offer, it would be to go on as many camps and join as many clubs as possible, especially
those relating to your course early on - this is one guaranteed way to meet new friends. Throughout the year, try to
achieve a balance in your life - neither drowning yourself entirely in copious amounts of beer nor burying your head in
the books is recommended. Instead aim for a comfortable pass whilst enjoying other sporting and social interests. If
learning the material doesn't motivate you to pass, think of that extra time spent at uni if you fail a subject or two every
year. Where possible, try to get copies of notes and material in advance, so that you have time to absorb what the
lecturer is saying during the lecture, instead of mindlessly dictating material - a job better suited to the photocopier if
necessary. If you have any problems bounce ideas off anyone you know in the course ahead of you, for example a
mentor.
Student: Faculty of Engineering
Unfortunately my transition into university was a very bumpy ride. My first year has taught me many lessons that I would
like to pass on to you as a first year student. It is important to keep in mind at all times that university life is much
different to high school. There is much less pressure and it really comes down to keeping yourself motivated and
exercising self control.
My first downfall at university was the freedom and adult treatment you receive. Don't get me wrong, this is a great
thing. I just could not handle the lack of pressure. Turning 18, getting my licence and going out to nightclubs with new
Uni friends did not help either. I also work 15hrs (FRI, SAT, SUN) and being at uni five days a week was a bit stressful
with work as well. There was not enough time for study and just a day to not do anything. I began to fall behind with
work and was fooling myself by thinking that it would all be under control by exam time. Was I wrong! I underestimated
the amount of work that needed to be done. As a result I failed a subject that I had to repeat.
Second semester seemed a lot brighter at the beginning, but I was too lazy to continue with work. It became tradition for
some of us to miss the 4-6pm tutorials or the late afternoon classes and this put me further behind in my studies. I did
not learn from first semester and again I failed ... not one subject but three!!
•
The summer break has been a good time for me to think about my future and just how serious I am about it. The fact is I
don't want to end up without a degree. I want to be an Environmental Engineer. For me to have any hope in improving
my results I have to review the last year and determine my weaknesses. I am now going to repeat my failed subjects. I
will not be doing classes with my friends and will be a semester behind. The following points emphasise what I have
learnt. I hope you find them useful:
• Always do the work that is set for you. Even if you don't have to hand it in, it is set for a reason.
• Read all the handouts you are given. It is easy to just put them anywhere and forget about them, but lecturers don't
photocopy notes just for fun!!
• University is a great place to meet people and have a good time. I guarantee you will have fun but you have to find a
balance.
• Go to the tutorials. It is the best time to ask questions and to keep yourself up to date.
• If you have any problems during the year, do not let them grow. See the Course Adviser and you will be guided on
what to do or who to speak to. This is what I wish I had done at the start of the year.
Join the mentor scheme. I did not take advantage of it. Make it a point that you speak to your mentor and gain as
much knowledge as possible. A mentor has a lot of experience.
Don't let university deceive you. There is always more work than what there appears to be. You are only fooling yourself
if you attend lectures and think you are fine. Homework is one of the keys to passing.
I would like to wish you the best of luck in your studies.
