First-Year Focus program allows students to build a core group of peers by taking same sets of courses, while still giving freedom to explore their own professional interests. Adding to the courses in Standard Timetable, students can still self-select 1-2 courses per term based on their academic interests and availability. Students can pursue most specializations* after completing FYF. The examples below give some insight into how this program can apply to your future studies and towards your career goals.
