Academic Preparation Program (APP) - Science Oriented

The Academic Preparation Program has been developed to help get new students off to the best possible start at Flinders. Each 50 minute session has been co-created by our academic staff and our students to give you the information and skills you will need while you’re at University.

All sessions are free and no bookings are required. Please come along and join us for any of the sessions. You can also live stream some of the sessions if you are unable to come on campus.

Check the campus map for lecture theatre locations.

Events indicated with an asterisk (*) can be livestreamed.
