EXPERIENCE GUIDE ADVICE: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT ST. JEROME’S (THAT YOU MIGHT NOT ALREADY)
28 Mar, 2018
At SJU, we think that the people with the best understanding of the student experience are the students themselves. That’s why we’ve asked our Experience Guides, who you may meet if you come for a tour of SJU, to offer some advice on what being an SJU student is really like.

As current students, we’ve all been in your shoes at some point in the last few years, and we know how challenging the transition to university can be. That’s why we’re here to help, and hopefully, with our advice, you’ll be able to make that transition with ease and success.
 
This time, we asked our Experience Guides to tell us what they’ve learned about St. Jerome’s since beginning their studies! By hearing these facts before you start your studies here you’ll already be one step ahead! Check out what they had to say below!
