Student feedback,
“Keys to Success”:

 “Not only does it teach you skills for school, but it teaches you skills for life. “

Mum made me come to the first session but it was actually quite helpful and all the other sessions have helped with my work despite the fact that I knew a lot about the content covered.

How do I enrol?

Sessions are held in the LTC Library, Downstairs Seminar Room.
