Q. How do STUDY LINK subjects work?
STUDY LINK offers a range of online subjects that are short and self-paced. These preparatory subjects will make the link between your current knowledge and skills and what’s needed in your formal studies.
Each STUDY LINK subject is intended to provide you with meaningful, relevant content that is designed to assist your learning in the university environment. We provide you with the materials and you will have access to a Subject Coordinator, your teacher, who is there to help you progress through the subject and whom you can contact for assistance.
Q. How long do STUDY LINK subjects take to complete?
STUDY LINK subjects take between 13 and 40 hours to complete. It is entirely up to you whether you have a concentrated period focused on particular skills development or you decide to take your time and complete them over an extended period. The STUDY LINK terms are made quite long to accommodate both options; we know that people do lead very busy lives. All we require is that you finish by the final assessment due date at the end of each term so that your Subject Coordinator can give you timely feedback regarding the short practice activities.
Q. Who can enrol in STUDY LINK?
STUDY LINK subjects are available to:
- students who receive and accept an offer for enrolment in a full course or Single Subject Study at CSU
- students who are already studying at CSU or at another institution
- anyone who is thinking about going to University and wants to brush up their skills in a few areas or get an idea of the expectations of tertiary study.
Q. When are STUDY LINK subjects offered?
STUDY LINK subjects are offered in three terms across the year – check out the STUDY LINK Calendar for the dates of enrolment. The STUDY LINK terms run at different times to the normal CSU sessions to give you more opportunities to enrol and complete subjects, either before you start at CSU or during Session breaks in your course when there are no lectures.
Q. Do STUDY LINK subjects count towards my degree?
STUDY LINK subjects are NOT credit bearing and therefore do not count towards a university qualification. When you have satisfactorily completed a STUDY LINK subject, you will receive a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.
