First Year Model - a better way to learn

What is the First Year Model?

In 2018, we designed a new way of learning to make your transition into university easier and give you the skills to succeed when you enter the workforce.

By studying one unit at a time in small groups, and with classes only three days a week, you’ll have less stress, more support from lecturers and a greater chance at success.

To find out how the First Year Model works in just 60 seconds, watch this video.

Our students are loving the First Year Model and it's proven effective with our 2018 first-year pass rate increasing to 90%.
