Support is a crucial part of success
Juggling work-life pressures can be stressful, particularly at peak times when assignments are due, or exams are looming. The good news is, we've been helping students for a long time, and we understand most of the challenges you'll face, so we can help you with practical advice, tips and resources.
When you start your studies you'll be given a list of resources, but if you're ever confused make contact with your TAFE's student support services:
The Library - it's more than just books
One of the main challenges students face is written assignments.
Assignments can be daunting, particularly if you haven't studied for a long time - or if study is a whole new gig. You'll find the library staff are a huge help, so make sure you get in contact with them - start local and catch up with your TAFE library team, or connect with the FedUni Library - you can email, check out FAQs at libanswers.federation.edu.au or chat via federation.edu.au/library call 1300 552 567.
