What is the VTP?
The VTP is a unique program for commencing student veterans. The next VTP commences just prior to Semester 1 of 2024 as part of the ACU’s continued commitment to support students with their successful transition into higher education.
Through workshops, lectures, tutorials and sessions focusing on reflective thought and critical thinking, the program equips student veterans with key academic skills and fosters a better understanding of what to expect during the first year of higher education.
The program is student-centred and aims to:
- familiarise students with the ACU environment and foster a sense of support from the academic staff, services and peer network
- provide knowledge of basic academic techniques, with an opportunity for practical application
- generate a sense of belonging through campus culture and support of greater peer networks.
The VTP runs as a two-week intensive transition and preparation program from Monday 29 January to Thursday 8 February 2024, prior to semester start. The program is conducted from 9.00am to 3pm each day online for all campuses and face to face in Brisbane.
