The Student Support Team’s Weekly Study Guide – Week 2 – get study tips and tricks
Welcome to Week Two. Hopefully you are starting to settle into a routine. We suggest getting into the habit of spending 12 – 15 hours per week of study on each of your Units. If you’re not sure how much time you have available to study, checkout our Time Management Tool.
The University contacts you about all manner of things via email exclusively, so make sure you check your UNE email account 2-3 times a week, or forward it to another account you check daily.
You can also download your referencing guide via the Academic Skills Office: www.une.edu.au/current-students/ resources/academic-skills/referencing and get acquainted with that before you get started on your assignments.
Remember, if you haven’t done so already, you need to complete Online Orientation in Moodle. When you login, you will see a link to the ‘Student Success Program (Online Orientation)’ on your dashboard.
This program takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete and will remain open to students as a resource until the end of Trimester 1. You can complete it at your own pace at a time that suits you, but keep in mind that your lecturers will expect you to have completed this program and it contains compulsory components (including the Academic Integrity Module).
Finally, Monday 12 March (today) is the last day to add Year-long 1, Year-long Honours 1 and Trimester 1 units to an existing enrolment. If you need help with that, make sure you call Student Central on 02 6773 2000.
