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.



  1. Check your Confirmation of Class Enrolment, which was sent to your student email account 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 you’re 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.
