Talk Schedule

Clueless about the curriculum in university and at FASS? Concerned about securing your modules? You wouldn't be anymore after attending the FASS Orientation Talks. General Talks allow freshmen to understand the Faculty and University better, while Department talks offer a glimpse into the subject matter of the respective majors that FASS offers. These talks will be held at LT11 and live-streamed in LT12 & 13, and we hope to see you there!
