IGNITE: Arrive & Thrive

Would YOU like a head start to achieve your goals? Are you a new student studying at The College?

The College has introduced an exciting online-Pod resource (IGNITE: Arrive & Thrive) designed for new students to complete before your course commencement.  The Pod IGNITES your passion about your chosen course, helps you to unlock your potential, embrace your diversity, and paves the way for you to transition into University study with success.  There are three short, interactive modules guaranteed to put you one step ahead of the crowd in your academic journey:

  • Module 1 focuses on helping you to build the important skills of resilience, time and organisational management.
  • Module 2 maps your course to your career aspirations making the most out of your studies to ensure you are prepared for employment.
  • Module 3 equips you with cutting-edge digital technologies to thrive in any learning environment.

The modules are not required to be completed in any particular order, so you are able to choose first what you think would benefit you the most, in order to optimise your learning experience.

Want to IGNITE your potential, ARRIVE with a head start, and THRIVE throughout your studies? Your first step to success starts by clicking here.

It will take you to the landing page of vUWS (your e-learning management platform) where you then enter your student id and password.  Then on the left hand side under ‘My vUWS’ click on the link that says, IGNITE: Arrive & Thrive and then you’re ready to ignite your academic journey.
