Starting your university career can be fun, exciting and also overwhelming. In school, your teachers and the administrative staff have prepared your schedule, told you when assignments were due and reminded you to prepare for exams. Now, as a university student, you will have to take care of all these things (and more!) yourself.
But fear not, for there is help out there! Perhaps you have friends and relatives who can give you some “freshmen advice”. Speaking of friends, let us introduce you to your new best friend who you can (and should) seek out whenever you are facing any kind of trouble: the INTERNETz! It knows the answer to nearly any question you might have. And what do you have to do to get an answer? That’s right, you have to ask a question first!
Throughout your studies you will understand what “doing research” actually means, but this is what you should already know in advance: studying is all about asking questions and trying to find the answer.
For your convenience, we have created this Frequently Asked Questions Site. Read it carefully. We get so many e-Mails with questions that could be answered within a few minutes, if only students took their time to read the many info sites.
Before we get started, make sure you bookmark the following links. Before asking anyone else, have a look at these.
