Academic reflection exercise to improve academic performance

AWARE aims to assist you to:

  • Reflect on the reasons why you are not doing as well as you would like
  • Increase your awareness about specific areas of concern
  • Make some decisions about what to do and how to do it
  • Provide you with ready access to relevant university resources and services
  • Develop an action plan for future study
  • Provide you with documentary evidence of your actions (if required).

Who is it for?
