Starting at CSU
University Life will differ greatly to high school. There's a lot more to manage than just getting to class on time.
Starting at university is likely to be a highly exciting but sometimes stressful experience. You will need to manage moving to a new city, making new friends, cooking for yourself, doing the laundry, managing study and maybe even a part-time job.
O Week (Orientation)
O Week is a fun and informative week full of activities to help you become familiar with the University environment and settle into being a uni student.
From school to uni
Being a student at uni is very different to being a school student. Suddenly you get a taste of that independence you always wanted. With increased independence comes increased responsibility, so you'll find that more will be expected from you, both in terms of study and looking after yourself.
Some courses offered by the University have special requirements, such as uniforms and equipment, and health checks which are necessary while on clinical placement or during session time.
What will it cost?
When preparing for university life, be aware of likely costs such as living expenses, accommodation, meals, transport and entertainment, and plan accordingly. While weighing up the expenses of studying, always remember the benefits of having the qualification you need to achieve your personal and professional goals.
Preparing for tertiary study
Learning support is available to students to help prepare them for study at tertiary level, even before they commence their degree. CSU offers a range of programs to help improve your study skills.
