Getting ready for uni

If you've just enrolled or are coming back to university, this page has information on what you need so you can pursue your dream career! It covers transitioning into the uni life, accommodation, finances, support services, tutoring and more. Our getting ready for your first day page is for new students looking for orientation information and advice on how to start their university journey. We've also included a link further down this page for you to expand your social life and show you the different opportunities that you can take part in.

If you're not quite ready to enrol but want to give uni a go, our Experience and prepare for uni page shows you the different options we offer to build your knowledge and skills, as well as your confidence!
