Before the end of my 1st session I should…
Attend a Uni Event
The uni hosts lots of gigs and events throughout session and they are a great way to meet other students. To see upcoming events check out What’s On.
Look into employment options
Once you have settled into your first session it is a good idea to explore your career options early in your studies. Read More…
Careers Central have a page dedicated to helping First Year Students kick start their career. You may also change your mind a number of times about your future career while you are at uni – that’s ok, a Careers Central Adviser can help. Careers Central can also help you find a casual job on or off campus. Visit Careers Central to check it out.
Prepare for my final exams
Do you know when and where your final exams are? Do you know how to best prepare for your exams? Read More…
Final exams can be stressful, but there is plenty you can do to minimise your stress and maximise your results. Learning Development have some great information and tips on how to successfully prepare for exams and maximise your study time.
Every student will be issued with their own personalised exam timetable on SOLS, make sure you check this well in advance of your exams and double check the time and location of each exam. For more information about sitting your exams, how to find your exam timetable, what you can and can’t take into an exam and what to do if you can’t make an exam please visit Exam Procedures.
Have you experienced the sights of Wollongong? Read More…
There are lots of great sights and things to do and see around Wollongong. Make sure you take the time to experience and explore Wollongong.
After my first session ends I should…
After your first session is over you will get your final marks, reflect, share your experience with others, celebrate and get ready to start your second session as a confident uni student.
Do you know how to find out your final results? Read More…
At the end of each session your final subject results will be published on the web and you can access them via SOLS. Results are not posted to students and will not be released by telephone or by enquiring at Student Central. To find out the date when your results will be released and for a definition of the different grades, check out Results.
Haven’t done as well in your studies as you would have liked or need help? A good place to start is making sure you understand your Course Progress Requirements. You can also see your Student Support Adviser if you have a non-academic issue that is affecting your study or make an appointment with Learning Development if you wish to enhance your academic performance.
Did you attend PASS? PASS is a great way to reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies. Whether you are a top performer or could use some improvement, you will benefit from the skills and understanding gained from attending PASS.
What subjects do I have to study next session
After successfully completing your first session you should take some time to plan the rest of your degree. Read More…
Most degrees require you to complete certain subjects and a specific number of credit points. To be able to complete some subjects, you may be required to complete a number of pre-requisite subjects. You can consult your Course Handbook to find out what subjects you need to complete or schedule an appointment with a Faculty Advisor. It is recommended that you plan your degree early on in your studies.
Enrol in Subjects
If you haven’t already done so you will need to enrol in subjects for your second session. Read More…
When choosing your subjects you should consult your Course Handbook to make sure you complete the correct subjects prescribed for your course. Once you have selected your subjects you can enter them via SOLS. To find out the correct re-enrolment procedure and for any other information regarding enrolment visit Admissions and Enrolment. Make sure you enrol before the deadline, otherwise it may cost you a lot in fines.
Enrol in Tutorials
Just like you did at the beginning of your first session you have to enrol yourself in tutorial classes for second session. Read More…
The procedure is exactly the same as for first session. You should check the Tutorial and Practical Preferences page to see when you can enrol in tutorials. You will also have to consult the University’s Timetable to find out what time lectures and tutorials for your subjects are running.
