10 must-knows for new students

UTS is welcoming more than 8000 new students on campus this session – about 1300 here in Health!

Here are a few things you should know that could help in a big way – all in one handy blog.

1. Student Centres can answer your admin and enrolment questions. Chat in person at the centre in Building 10 or submit a question online at ASK UTS. For nursing and midwifery students, remember to leave your clinical placement queries for the Clinical Practice Unit (CPU) up on level 6.

2. Finding your way is easier with a map – head to wayfinding.uts.edu.au

3. Got a class in Moore Park? There’s a shuttle for that.

4. In need of academic help? Tap into services like HELPS (English language and academic writing support), U:PASS (informal study groups), Library resources and your Academic Liaison Officer.

5. The Counselling Service and their self-help resources can help ensure your all-round well-being and state of zen. They can even help if you think you might be in the wrong course or want to learn mindfulness.

6. Did you know we have a bulk-billed medical service (in the Tower), a physiotherapy clinic (Building 4), a Chinese medicine and acupuncture clinic (Building 4) on campus? Plus all of our security guards are first-aid trained.

7. The Accessibility Service is the central contact for any students living with a disability, medical or mental health conditions.

8. The Careers Service can help you find jobs, fine-tune your CV, take LinkedIn headshots, practice for interviews – and even borrow a suit.
