Student Hub: Orientation

 

Orientation helps you get ahead before you even begin


Orientation sessions

Compulsory orientation sessions are held on each campus at the beginning of every trimester. Virtual Orientation sessions are also run for those of you studying online.

Orientation will take you through all you need to know about your:

  • Campus facilities
  • Studies
  • Support available to you

Orientation is a great opportunity to:

  • Meet your academic and support communities
  • Learn about student tools (like Blackboard and My Account)
  • Get to know your classmates
  • Have some fun!

We know that students who attend Orientation are far more likely to succeed in their studies.

Plus, you’ll know exactly where to go and what to do on Day 1. 

International students

As an international student you must attend a special Orientation as part of your visa requirements. It's a fun and informative session and we'll teach you a little bit about Australian culture at the same time!

We host Virtual Orientation sessions for our online students each trimester.

Virtual Orientation

Virtual Orientation is an online interactive broadcast for you to learn about student support and expectations in a fun and face-paced environment. Join us to:

  • familiarize yourself with Blackboard
  • tour the student hub online
  • hear from Success Coaches
  • meet your library and academic skills team

Get the most out of your studies

After you receive your timetable you can develop your study schedule.

A schedule is a great way to manage the time you'll need for study, classes and other commitments. It will help you plan for assignments and exams, and ensure there's enough time for other life activities. Follow the simple steps below.

5 STEPS TO CREATE A STUDY SCHEDULE

  1. Check your Confirmation of Class Enrolment, which was sent to you when you enrolled.
  2. Block out your timetable commitments on your schedule, i.e., lectures and tutorials and your other commitments such as work, sport and social activities.
  3. Work out when your most effective study times are (morning or evening?) and block out study periods for each of your subjects.
  4. Mark important dates such as assignment due dates and exams to make sure you have enough study time planned in the lead-up.
  5. Schedule regular breaks when studying, whether it’s going for a walk or getting a coffee. It will help you stay motivated.

Plan: Set your goals

Ask yourself: What are you here to achieve?

Take time to write down your goals and refer to them often.

These will keep you focused on completing your assignments with your bigger purpose in mind.

Goal-setting is also a great skill to have in the workplace. Get into the habit now with a goal-setting tool that works for you.
