Starting at university? Ensure you read this.

University Student Etiquette


Don’t be seen as the rude student who thinks of themselves as above everyone else. Here are some tips for some common student etiquette:


-          make a habit of arriving to tutorials or lectures late -

           besides being rude, the lecturer will know you for the wrong reasons

-          put your feet up on the seat in front of you – especially if someone is sitting there

-          make out you know more than the lecturer – no one likes a ‘know it all’

-          be too critical of another’s work especially if you haven’t done any yourself 

-          be the loafer when working on the group assignment – this is a quick way to lose friends

-          put negative comments about lecturers or fellow students on your online social network            page- anyone can access the internet and it will only reflect negatively on you

-          ignore people – network and you will probably learn a thing or two

-          forget who will be marking your assignment – ask questions and if you get a grade you     are  unhappy about – approach the marker sensibly and preferably after you have had a day to think about it.

-          write on the online Uni forum anything you may regret  as it is not easily deleted

University is a fun time of learning. Don’t let poor student etiquette get in the way of making new friends, learning and generally enjoying University life.
