Success Coach Tip

You can't manage time

Have you ever tried to slow time down, speed time up or even stop time? How did that go for you? The truth is that we can't manage time, however we can manage distractions. This time of year a lot of students are seeking help with time management. In fact, the best advice is to get a plan and manage the distractions.

 

6 tips to successfully manage your distractions:

  1. Get a plan – failing to plan is planning to fail
  2. Know yourself – if you do your best study in the morning, then block out your mornings for study
  3. Tell your friends – ask your friends to support you by not interrupting your study time
  4. Celebrate all wins – set a simple, achievable goal for each day and reward yourself
  5. Fall in love with discipline – do what you have to do, when you have to do it, whether you like it or not.
  6. Get a coach – everybody needs support and accountability. Make an appointment with your Success Coach.

Your work is the best work
Acknowledge external sources - it's that simple

As you prepare your first T3 assessments, revisit the Academic Integrity Policy.

We monitor all assessments for their honesty and integrity - and are able to identify assessments written by third-party services (known as ‘ghostwriters’). 

This is to make sure the marking process is fair for everyone and our students develop the ethics required to be outstanding professionals.

Remember to submit your own work and reference the work of others. Academic misconduct has serious consequences.

Check out TUA | THINK Academic Integrity Policy


Mindfulness Workshop 

Come and learn about Mindfulness and how it can help you with your studies, work and in general life.  Mindfulness assists with focus and concentration.  Mindfulness helps you learn to manage your stress and challenges in a more skillful way.

Respect. Now. Always

In February 2016, Universities Australia launched a ground breaking initiative to prevent and address sexual assault and harassment across the University sector. The initiative is called Respect. Now. Always. and highlights the determination of Australia’s universities to ensure that our universities are places of safety and respect. In late 2016, tens of thousands of University students were asked to participate in Australia’s first-ever national prevalence survey on university student experiences of sexual assault and sexual harassment. The survey results have now been analysed and the findings are being published by the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) in a national report released on 1 August 2017.

Here at Torrens University Australia, we want you to feel safe, secure and respected at all times. The wellbeing of our students and staff is our first priority always.  If you feel unsafe, or want to ask questions, please make sure you come and talk to us. Depending on the issue, you can talk to your Lecturer, Program Director, Success Coach, Counselling Team, Campus Director, SRC representative or Student Services, who can point you in the right direction. Please don’t stay silent.
