Join our new student community in Blackboard

While your Virtual Orientation session will introduce you to your academic and support teams, our comprehensive New Student Community will help you further understand your online learning environment. 

It is open to all new students but is especially useful for those who study remotely. You'll learn about:

  • creating a study space at home (or at the office, or at a friend's house!)
  • your IT requirements
  • Library and learning resources
  • the skills you already have (and how they'll help you to succeed)
  • support services just for you
  • plus more

And, you'll meet lots of other students in the online forum who are studying in your faculty.
