3 University of Pretoria Universiteit van Pretoria Yunibesithi ya Pretoria Faculty-related It is essential that all students attend these sessions as the information communicated to students will enable them to make mindful decisions regarding their study programmes. They will be provided with the context in which they will study and be exposed to an environment that will enable them to be successful. Students are supported to make optimal use of the facilities available and will be shown where they need to be on the first day of their academic year.

Student Health Student Health Services provide basic primary health care services to all registered students of the University of Pretoria, both local and international, by fully qualified and registered health care professionals on all UP’s campuses.

Primary health care, with an emphasis on health and wellness awareness, enables students to manage their own health and that of their communities. It also empowers students to self-manage their chronic diseases. A fully accredited voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) clinic for HIV and AIDS, operated in collaboration with the University’s Centre for the Study of AIDS and Gender, offers free testing and counselling to students. Security (SAFE@UP) The mission of the Department of Security Services is to create and maintain a safe work and study environment in which staff and students can flourish.

To achieve this, emphasis is placed on the collective responsibility of the entire UP public market. Information about strategic initiatives, such as the Green Feet Route, as well as parking and emergency contact details, is made available to students. Tailor-made safety tips are shared with students in an attempt to heighten their vigilance and to minimise students falling victim to any form of misdeed to an absolute minimum. In instances where students become victims to crime, this Department assists in facilitating criminal cases, as well as trauma counselling and other appropriate support as needed.

Mentoring University life is an entirely new experience to any first-year student, whether first-generation, from a private school or from a rural area or small town. First-year students need a “big brother or sister”, who will be able to do the following: • Support, advise, refer, guide and inform • Make them feel welcome on campus and in their faculties A breakdown of the sessions included in the 2018 Orientation Programme Mentorship is all about senior students who help first-year students adapt to university life. First-year students are supported emotionally and socially by their mentors.

This has a positive influence on their academic success. Library The library session is an informative session, where first-year students are motivated and encouraged to use the library to FLY. The session informs students about facilities, products and services of the library, and the importance of these to be successful in their studies. We make the library more visual with informal (but still of a high standard) and formal videos of the library. The use of questions and other interactive activities makes the session interesting and stimulating for the students. The following is included in the presentation: • The hours, access and layout of the library • Where to find information in the library • Introducing students to the library’s different e-resources • Information about the study collection • Inviting students to attend a short 20-minute session on using the library website • Introducing students to other facilities and products • The value the library will add to allow students to FLY • Videos on different aspects of the library in between the Prezi slides Amazing Race (Campus Tour) The Amazing Race is directed at satisfying the needs of first-year students who enter the University environment for the first time.

The objectives of the Amazing Race campus tour are as follows: • To facilitate the academic achievement of first-year students by providing a climate and a supporting environment that is conducive to their success at the University. • To facilitate the social adaptation of first-year students by exposing them to the various facets of UP and student life, as well as opportunities available on campus. • To facilitate the feeling of belonging and ownership in first-year students by introducing them to one another through interaction during the tour. • To develop skills that they can apply to constructively deal with the challenges of diversity within the University.

• To encourage community learning and cohort learning. Student Counselling The presentation of the Student Counselling and Support Unit focuses on providing students with information on the vital skills they need to develop in order to maximise their success at university. This presentation also focuses on guiding students to enhance their wellbeing at university by focusing on developing holistic wellbeing, making informed career choices, being aware of the importance of stress management, as well as building their psychological capital. We also provide students with information on other resources available on campus that are important for their success.

We encourage students to take a proactive attitude. UPO+STARS+FSA UPO is a compulsory, online module to be taken by all first-time, first year students. In this session, students will be introduced to the module to understand its purpose. They will see screen shots of what they will encounter when attempting the module and will be guided on how to complete it. Students will be made aware of the Student Academic Readiness Survey (STARS), which has a link in the UPO module. This survey needs to be completed by the end of the first week of lectures. The session also provides students with a taste of workshops that FSAs will provide during the year, as well as other possible support services available to students.

FLY@UP The core vision of FLY@UP is to encourage students to take responsibility for their own studies by sending out the message: the Finish Line is Yours. FLY@UP emerged from research pointing to the reasons why more than half of UP’s students do not graduate in the minimum time. In this session, these reasons will be discussed with new first-year students in an interactive manner. Strategies and suggestions for overcoming obstacles related to the reasons for not graduating in the minimum time will also be shared and discussed. These reasons can be summarised as follows: • Wrong/poor study choice • Financial challenges • Academic challenges • Personal challenges In addition, FLY@UP’s mission is to partner with existing resources at UP to offer students the best chance to graduate in the minimum time.

Consequently, events offering access to resources, as well as the resources themselves, will be discussed. Students will be informed about the contact details of FLY@UP and be encouraged to get in touch with FLY@UP should they face challenges to which they are unable to find solutions.
