Strategies for Success

Strategies for Success is a series of special multi-day workshops offered as part of orientation each semester. These workshops help clarify what to expect at university and give you strategies to succeed while you're here.

Strategies for Success can help improve your results, boost your confidence and is a great way to meet new people. We tailor Strategies for Success for all faculty and UniLink students. This helps you get information that's most relevant to your course.
