How does AA for undergraduate work?
AA is an online course which means you can participate at times that suit you and work at your own pace. Once you have enrolled you will find five modules. We recommend that you start with ‘Making the Most of Your Studies’ then you can work on the other modules when they are most relevant for you. You can also access some of the content that is shared with postgraduate students such as interview skills.
The AA Avatars
The content in AA has been developed to be interactive and engaging. Alongside you as students, taking the course are a set of digital personae, or the AA Avatars. These are representations of Imperial students (they are not real) that have been created to help describe elements of the course. These personae identify skills, access Imperial services, and ask you questions as they progress through AA.
Throughout AA we encourage you to reflect on the experiences you have and keep a log of these in your Plan: Me. This is the decision-making tool, used by the Careers Service, which incorporates skills development and reflection to help you track your progress as you move through the course. To try out the course and learn more about the process of reflection try the first few slides of the ‘Reflection’ unit.
