Attending face to face orientation
All online students are welcome to attend any of the events or activities being held at your nearest campus. It is a great opportunity to meet some students, participate in social activities, and meet some of the friendly staff who will be supporting you throughout your student journey.
Meet your mentor
All online students are allocated a mentor to help support their transition to life as an online Uni student. You will meet your mentor during orientation week via the online student hub.
All students have access to a Moodle shell called ‘Getting Started at FedUni’ which will help orient you to the university environment and get you ready for study. The modules in this short self-paced course will help answer important questions like how to get your student card, how to apply for scholarships, and strategies for online learning.
Online student hub
The online student hub is designed as a place for students to connect with their mentors, support staff, and each other. If you are studying online you should automatically be enrolled in the online hub on Moodle.
Each semester our online mentors host a ‘trivia chat’ where you can have a bit of fun and battle it out to win prizes. Trivia competitions are held during orientation in the Online Student Hub.
Various Faculty based activities will be held throughout orientation and the first few weeks of semester, and will take place through the online student hub. Make sure you check your student email and Moodle forums regularly for any updates.
Missed out on FedReady but want to update your academic skills before semester starts? The self-paced option gives you the opportunity to learn the core academic skills at any time of the year, at your own pace. The course has no direct staff support, but you can contact us with any questions, and you can still upload the final essay for feedback on your academic writing skills.
The FedUni library has some fantastic self-help resources including frequently asked questions for online students. You can also chat with a real live librarian and get support to find resources for your course.
