FedReady academic support

We're here to support you every step of the way. That starts with preparing for academic success.

Enhance your orientation experience by completing our free FedReady program. With a range of sessions, lessons and workshops provided by staff and students, FedReady will help you get a head start at uni. The program includes a range of self-paced and live online content, as well as in-person sessions for you to pick and choose from. There are also experienced students on campus and online to help you out and answer any questions you might have.

Work through the online modules at your own pace (via Moodle) or follow the suggested timetable below. All live sessions will be recorded and uploaded into FedReady Moodle.

Access FedReady

FedReady can be accessed through the Moodle course, where you will find all online content, as well as information on how to attend in-person sessions. Log in to Moodle with your student ID and password.

If you're new to Federation in 2022 you will be automatically enrolled in FedReady, and are not required to register for the program.

If you're a returning student continuing your studies, register here to join FedReady.
