The University of Lethbridge’s Early Start Experience (ESE) will be offered to new students online in August, to learn all they need to set them up for success at the university.

Offered by the School of Liberal Education, ESE is designed to help students make the transition from high school to university, while earning them a full course credit in the two weeks before the regular September start of classes.

“When students start university, they start a journey to a new stage of life,” says Shelly Wismath, dean of the School of Liberal Education. “As they enter the academic community, students are challenged to find their place in this new world. The Early Start Experience gives students valuable social, cultural and academic skills that are useful regardless of their major.”

Students learn how to do research, write for university-level courses, study effectively and access all the resources available to them at the university. Especially valuable right now, students will also learn how to manage and do well in their online courses.

“The Early Start Experience gives new students the chance to prepare for their academic studies at the U of L,” says Wismath. “With most classes being online in the fall, they’ll also be poised to succeed in the online learning environment.”

The Early Start Experience is scheduled to run from Aug. 24 to Sept. 4 and registrations are being accepted. The program is available to all first-year students who have been accepted to the U of L for the Fall 2020 semester.
