Here are some of the common bits of feedback from students in our University of Newcastle reviews:
Time management is key (particularly Engineering, Nursing and Medicine);
Immerse yourself in Uni / course - attend all your tutorials/labs, etc - it's the best way to learn and impacts your results;
Try to chat to teachers and ask questions or get feedback;
Organise placements early and make the most of them;
Read the course book and understand exactly what you're getting into;
Get involved in Uni life, activities, clubs, societies - it's a great way to make friends and in some cases practical exposure.
