University 1 (U1) is a unique, flexible approach to your first year at UM. It allows you to meet the admission or first year requirements for one or more target degree programs, even if you are not yet sure which degree path is right for you.
In other words, you have the flexibility to explore a variety of subject areas while completing the first year of a three or four year degree—even before you've even been accepted to a specific program of study.
U1 can also be helpful if you're transitioning from high school to university by providing a large support network for first year students in adapting to university life and academic expectations.
U1 will not add any time or cost to your degree. It serves as year 1 of any three or four-year degree.
