University 1000

A warm welcome to the University of Prince Edward Island and to the University 1000 home page.

Your decision to come to university marks a turning point in your life. During the next four or five years, you will be making perhaps the most important investment you will ever make-an investment in your future.

Even if you performed well in high school, you will find the University environment different and challenging. University 1000 is designed to help you make the most of your university experience. Dedicated faculty will work with you to help you develop:

  • critical thinking
  • communication
  • writing skills
  • study skills
  • research skills

University 1000 will help you adjust to your post-secondary studies by providing you with the necessary skills to not only survive but thrive during your first year of post-secondary studies.

Identification of personal values and career goals will enhance your first year experience. Please review our calendar description and take a look at our brochure and other links, to get a sense of what University 1000 has to offer you!

"University 1000 provides a graceful transition from high school to university."
