Starting a degree or adding to your qualifications is an exciting and sometimes daunting time. It’s why we make a massive effort to ensure you get all the support you need to have a positive experience – on or off campus.
We're a uni that values individual differences and diversity. We have a multicultural mix of people who’ve chosen to study here, as well as a wide range of ages – from school leavers to people returning to study.
We also respect the Nyoongar people, the traditional custodians of the land on which our campuses are built, and we're committed to developing our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff.
Open Day & Orientation Week
Open Day is held every year at all of our campuses, with a different day allocated to each one.
It's about opening our doors to visitors like high school students, people returning to study, parents and teachers. It's a fun-filled, fact-finding experience for everyone.
Orientation happens the week before the start of each semester and it's a great way for new students to adjust to uni life.
In O-Week you'll get to meet teaching staff and new students, find your way around campus and understand where to go for our legendary support.
Tips for enjoying uni life
Being successful at uni is as much about being organised as it is about being intelligent.
Manage your time with a study pattern that helps you get to lectures/tutorials and submit your assignments on time.
Ask for help
Don't be put off by any early struggles. Talk to your lecturers, tutors, learning advisers or any of our other 'supporters'. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
Meet people and do stuff
Don't be a stranger. Join a club or society. Attend everything you can, not just lectures and tutorials, but forums and other school activities.
Find a balance
Uni life is all about balance. You need to find that place between 'party animal' and 'full-on student' that suits you best.
