The weeks between Orientation and Week 8 are spent getting to know the University, your subjects, your classmates, finding information about your assignments, lectures and tutorials. During Week 8 you may have a little more time to step back and reflect on your first few weeks in University. It can be an opportunity to catch up if you are behind on readings and for you to get on top of your assignments. It is a time for you to assess how the first half of trimester has gone, and to make the most of the supports that are on campus to prepare you for end of trimester. The following supports are available for you to utilise during Week 8, and throughout your journey at UCD.
