Student Hub: Orientation



Orientation helps you get ahead before you even begin

Orientation Sessions

Compulsory orientation sessions are held at the beginning of every trimester. These are usually held on campus but in the current environment we are holding  orientation sessions online for you.

Please check the event details under your campus below on this page and ensure you register for the correct event.

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

  • Studies
  • Support available to you
  • Campus facilities

Orientation is a great opportunity to:

  • Meet your library and academic skills teams
  • Find out about support available to you
  • Learn about student tools (like Blackboard and My Account)
  • Get to know your campus team via the online campus booths

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

Meet your Academics and get to know your course schedule will be published during your Orientation session

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.
