Final assessments

Muhammad Ali said, "I hated every minute of training but I said,
'Don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

 

1. Shake it up! 

Don’t get stuck in your same old study routine, as this is where motivation drops. Study with friends, study at different times and study in different places. Keeping your surroundings and your mind fresh helps to build motivation and can create inspiration in the most unusual of places.

2. Get distracted - but own it

Distractions happen. Family phone calls, Facebook messages or one of a million other things happen. Don't freak out – own it. Tell yourself "OK, its time for a break – I’m going to take 15 minutes to do this then get back into it".

3. Eat smart = study smart

Personally, I find there are few things worse than studying on an empty stomach. To keep you motivated and charging make sure you are stocked up on good food to give you the energy. No, I don’t want to sound like your mum, but yes a piece of fruit will serve you better than a packet of lollies :)

4. Play to your strengths

Everyone learns differently, so do what works for you. Maybe you’re great at writing pages and pages of notes, maybe you like to illustrate your ideas, maybe you sort information into categories and then write a report – however, you learn, you know how you learn best, so do what you are best at. As Dr Seuss says, "be yourself, everyone else is taken”.

5. Keep your eye on the goal

Everyone has a dream, a passion or a goal – a purpose for their degree. Maybe you want to open your own business or become the next big designer. Perhaps you want to operate your own clinic or hotel. Whatever your dream, let it always be your driving force.


Real stories from your community

Check out your fellow students talking about their area of study - from around the region (Australia and New Zealand) - in our Torrens University campaign. Today we meet Sheree from MDS at Torrens. We're having a proud moment and hope you do too!

Keep an eye out for more videos over the coming weeks as we showcase your amazing community.


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.
