First time enrolment

It may feel like just paperwork but enrolment is an exciting step into student life.

The process flows like this:

Student admin essentials

Get your student ID card

To get your Student ID ready, you can either:

A: Email a passport sized head shot (or high res selfie), your full name and student number to the Torrens or THINK Student Services team, and we will let you know when it is ready for collection. If you are an online student, we will arrange to send your ID card via post. 

Or

B. Meet us at Orientation where we'll take your photo and generate your card for you

Tip! Orientation gets busy so we recommend emailing your photo in advance so all you have to do is pick it up on the day!

 

Set up your student email address

We send important class, lecturer and community information to your student email address. You will need to setup your unique student email account.

Here's how to set up your student email:

  • Sign-in to your student email account via Gmail or My Account
  • If you have an existing Gmail account, you will need to select "Add Account" to sign in to your student email account
  • Your new email address will be made of your full name and college or institution. For example:
    jane.smith@student.williamblue.edu.au
    jane.smith@students.apm.edu.au
    jane.smith@student.tua.edu.au
  • Your password will be your student number- (Example: 00123456T)
  • You will be prompted to change your password the first time you log in
  • You're done!
