Study groups give you and your fellow residents an opportunity to go over many of the important concepts that you need to grasp for your courses, and to learn important study skills that will increase your chances of success, not only in first year, but throughout your entire university career.
For students who are experiencing difficulties, it is a great place to have problems clarified in an informal setting.
For students who feel more confident, it is a great place to test your knowledge of course material.
Study group leaders have you answer all of the questions that come up, so it is a good way for you to see whether or not you are prepared for your exams.
Leaders encourage you to learn important study skills that are useful throughout your university career. View a list of study skills written by the study group leaders themselves..
We encourage you to send emails to your leader before each study group session if you want him/her to prepare special material. In addition to that, the last few minutes of every group session will be spent filling out feedback forms that give the leaders ways to improve their groups and what to plan for the next week’s activities.
