FIRST YEAR SEMINAR 2017 (31 JANUARY - 3 FEBRUARY 2017)

The University of Johannesburg would like to welcome all its new first year undergraduate students!

​An informative and compulsory First Year Seminar programme has been arranged for all our first years. This includes academic orientation to the Faculty, the Department and the specific programmes for which students have been accepted. Students will meet their lecturers, receive their timetables and get to know their fellow students and the campus they will be studying on.

The First Year Seminar programmes are available from this website. U​nder 'Faculty Programmes' at the bottom of this page​, click on your Faculty​​ for the Faculty-specific programme, dates and venues.

The First Year Seminar is also when students will be introduced to the wide range of academic development and support services the University offers – the Library and Information Centres, Writing Centres, the Computer Facilities, Psychological Counselling and Career Development and the Career Resource Centres. These services are free and aim at enabling our students to achieve success in their studies.
