University of Adelaide57 Slide 58 The First Year Experience Survey A recent research project by South Australian universities to determine the gap between student expectations and experiences in their first year of study. Over 6000 new students were surveyed as they were commencing study (in 2010), and again a year later (in 2011). University of Adelaide58 Slide 59 Key Gaps between Student Expectations and Experience Three-quarters of commencing students had unrealistic expectations about how much time they need to study. The recommended amount of study for university subjects is 6-10 hours per week per subject (outside of class time). This is double what is expected of students at school and is equivalent to a full time job. Over 2/3 of new university students believed that their university teachers would provide all the materials needed for their learning, when in reality they needed to learn to source information themselves. University of Adelaide59 Slide 60 Academic Skills Preparation Course: Available now A crash course that will prepare you for study in the Faculty of HUMSS in under an hour Developed to address academic issues new students commonly seek assistance with The course looks at the core skills HUMSS students are assessed on in their first year: essay writing, referencing, research skills and grammar.
