Banner

 

Congratulations on taking the next step to realise your potential. We are excited to help you get there.


First time enrolment

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

The process flows like this:

  1. Accept your course offer
  2. Complete all required documentation
  3. We will send you an email with information on how to enrol in your subjects or check the enrolment information on your specific course page here on the Hub.
  4. Follow the steps outlined within this email to select your subjects

If you need any further information please visit the Subject Selection page or contact Student Services. We're here to help you every step of the way, so reach out. 

Once you've enrolled, you will be sent a Confirmation of Class Enrolment. This will list your subject name, day, time and location of your classes. Please check this carefully to make sure you are correctly enrolled.

Student admin essentials

Get your student ID card

To get your Student ID ready, you can meet us at Orientation, or just head to Student Services whenever you are on campus, where we'll take your photo and generate your card for you.

Tip! Student Services can get busy during Orientation so you may have to wait a while to have your card made!

Set up your student email address

Go to the  Student email and Office 365 page.

 

Access to a computer while you study

You will need to have access to a computer with internet access while you study in order to:

  • Complete assessments,
  • Use the library catalogue,
  • Access online resources,
  • Use your Learning Portal and MySSNT

You will also need to have a set of standard software packages, internet connectivity and reasonably good computer skills, we can help with this.

As there are limited computers available for use on campus, we suggest you start planning how you'll access one for your study.

If you are going to buy a computer and need guidance, make sure you get some expert advice about how to satisfy your needs as a student.

Accessing the internet

Google Chrome or Firefox are the recommended web browsers to use when accessing the Learning Portal.

Download Google Chrome

Download Firefox

Printing, scanning, copying and free WiFi

All campuses have student printing, scanning and copying services available to you, as well as free WiFi. Check out the "IT on Campus" section of your local campus information page for WiFi logins and other details about these services.

Join our New Student Community in Blackboard

Our comprehensive New Student Community will help you further understand your online learning environment.

It is open to all new students, but is especially useful for those who study remotely. You'll learn about:

  • Creating a study space at home (or at the office, or at a friend's house!)
  • Your IT requirements
  • Library and learning resources
  • The skills you already have and how they'll help you to succeed
  • Support services just for you

And you'll meet lots of other students in the online forum who are studying with you.


Student travel concessions

If you are a full-time, domestic student studying on campus you should be eligible for a public travel concession card. Talk to Student Services for assistance in organising the documentation required to make it happen.

Public transport concessions are not usually available to international, online or part time students, please check with your local campus to see if you can apply. You can see more details about transport concessions on your local public transport site.
