Gateway to success

Wits has created an exciting programme to help you find your feet and successfully make the transition to being a university student. Gateway to Success is a compulsory programme for all new first year students that integrates academic content and skills, student life, health and wellness and orientation to Wits. It will be run in a blended format, with some activities taking place on campus and some being run in an online mode.

After completing Gateway to Success, students will have the knowledge and skills to use the Wits online Learning Management System, ulwazi, for their academic courses from Day 1 of the term, know their way around campus and where to get support; get introduced to First Year Experience Mentorship, make friends, and feel part of the Wits community.

First Year registration Welcome Day will be held on 5 February and Gateway to Success runs from 6 February to 20 February, so be sure to be in Johannesburg for the whole programme.
