Getting started

Enrolment help

Once you have all the information you need about your course, it is a good idea to get some enrolment help.

During orientation, there will be staff available in the Library (Building 8, Level B) to help you to complete your enrolment and organise your timetable.

Student ID card

To save time, you can upload a photo in advance through MyUC. Search for ‘ID card’ in the MyUC student portal and follow the steps outlined.

Once approved, you will receive a QR code to print your card at the kiosk in the Library


Course advice sessions

Course advice sessions are a great way to start orientation. Each course has a session where you can learn what to expect and meet faculty staff and other students studying your degree.

Study skills essentials session

The study skills essentials session will help you get off to a great start with your studies and provide tips for success at UC, including:

  • understanding the unit outline
  • tips from unit conveners
  • understanding referencing and plagiarism
  • the study help available.
