  • Reflect on the stage you’re at in your learnings and what you want to achieve
  • Find experiences you can have to build your skills and knowledge for uni and work
  • Work out any challenges you may be facing and how to overcome them
  • Put a plan in place to help you achieve your goals, small or large
