This is an excellent, fun way for you to get a head-start on your uni journey. Learn about academic expectations and support available to you at ACU, interact with other students and feel more prepared before starting your studies.
A crew member of our Connect2Uni Student Mentoring program is available to stay in touch with you during your first semester for peer-to-peer guidance and support. They will help you meet other students, answer your common questions, give directions, and promote the services and opportunities available to you.
We run a fun and friendly week of face-to-face and online workshops designed to ease you into the uni environment ahead of Orientation. Come along to familiarise yourself with your campus, learn some key study skills, meet staff and fellow students, and feel more confident about uni life.
We proactively reach out to you during the semester to check in and ensure that you are travelling well. You can talk to us about your experience at ACU or seek guidance and direction if you’re feeling unsure about who to ask for help.
Once classes begin, if you find yourself struggling with your workload or are feeling overwhelmed, know that you don’t have to withdraw from university to solve these issues. You can contact Connect2Uni to get course withdrawal support, and we can advise you on the services available and enrolment options to ease your mind.
