Resources for students studying online

We know that some students will be used to studying online, and for others it will be a completely new experience. We also understand that the technology and online study skills you will use while you study may be different to those you are using at home or work. That’s why we have put together a few resources to help you feel comfortable studying online with us.

Introduction to studying online booklet

This booklet is designed to help introduce you to the technology that you will come across as you commence study with us here at Federation University. Here you will find useful terminology, an overview of the university systems, and information about resources you can use to help learn more.
