Welcome to all first-year students in the Faculty of Science!

We are a Faculty that cares and supports first-year students throughout their transition into university studies and even in years to come.  The Faculty boasts an excellent First Year Seminar (FYS) that forms an integral part of a credit bearing module (Adapting to Science in the Higher Education – SCIT01) presented during the first semester.  Attending this module will assist students with specifically Mathematics and Problem Solving and English Language at university level.  The classes have been scheduled throughout the first semester and you will be notified when you arrive on campus where and when classes will be presented.

The official lectures start on Monday the 8th of February and lecturers will meet with you on that day.

MONDAY, 8 FEB 2016 @ 08:00 APK, A Les G01.
