Enrolment

New students

New students will be sent an invitation (via email) to attend an orientation and enrolment session in the week before classes commence. During this session students will be instructed on how to enrol in their subjects for the semester and provided advice on subject selection.

Please see reception for any questions regarding the orientation and enrolment session for new students.

Current students

Re-enrolling students are not required to attend an enrolment session prior to classes commencing. Instructions on how to enrol in your subjects can be viewed on the student portal.

For help enrolling or with subject selection, please see reception to make an appointment to see a member of the Academic Services Team.
