2018 Student Diary

The student diary is a resource that provides students with information on support services, programs and workshops, as well as important dates. Some of the information is for new students but much of the information is relevant to all Federation University Australia students.

Work has commenced on the 2018 Student Diary and Student Connect wants to ensure we get it right!
