With so many course options, it can be challenging to plan your target faculty's entrance requirements while at the same time, keeping your options open while you build experience in your first year.
The U1 Start Book is a unique way to plan your first year by using 3 different flexible approaches:
Focused Approach - if you are certain about your target faculty, this approach shows you how to complete all of the required first year courses to enter your chosen target faculty
Balanced Approach - when you are deciding between more than one faculty and want to keep your options open, this approach can allow you to meet the minimum requirements for entering one or more faculties, while allowing exploration into other areas of study
Sampling Approach - a good option for full- and part-time students, you are free to try courses from different areas before committing to a target faculty, allowing you to discover your individual strengths and interests
The U1 Start Book identifies all the necessary High School Prerequisites and Admission Requirements for each faculty and provides valuable Tips for Choosing Courses, making it easy to schedule all of your target faculty's requirements.

The U1 Start Book is a companion to the larger U of M General Calendar, which provides detailed information on each U of M faculty, U of M policies and regulations, campus services and academic schedule.
