With so many options to choose from and different terminology used it’s not surprising that university can seem like a big leap from high school, with you asking questions such as:

  • How is a degree structured?
  • What’s the difference between a double degree and a double major?
  • What support is available to me?

Students and parents are invited to this session given by the UC Liaison team who will answer these questions and many more.
