Online Check-In Week
What is Check-in Week?
During Check-in Week the Uni will be focusing on making sure you are 100% set up to get through the rest of the semester. By now you will be able to make decisions about adjusting your study load to suit your lifestyle, managing your commitments, building the study skills you need, and asking for help if you have anything that isn't working yet.
How does your study load work for you?
After 3 weeks of semester you'll know how your study load is fitting in to your life. You can even make adjustments to the number of subjects you are undertaking to make it fit better. Hungry for more? Want to take a load off? Talk to your Faculty about making your study load suit your lifestyle. You can adjust your enrolment in My Student Centre.
Don't forget census date is coming up on August 31, 2016. Visit our website for more information on important dates at FedUni.
Had big changes in the last 3 weeks?
University is a big life change. From the commitment you make each week to study, right through to the opportunities that open up at the end, University will have a big impact on your life. If you have had life changes that might be overshadowing the new opportunities you're getting from University, we can help! Talk to your Faculty about options of pausing your study while you focus on other parts of your life. Need someone to talk to? Try our brilliant Counselling Service.
