Welcome Events

The first few weeks are an exciting time, a chance to make new friends, spark new interests, and make a few unforgettable memories along the way. 

Our welcome events include many important activities dedicated to helping you settle in, become familiar with your campus, meet fellow students, and get a sense of the university life that awaits you. You can meet our Student Mentors, get an introduction to wellbeing and inclusion at USW and take a look at events set up by our Students' Union.



Resources and activities to help you prepare for studying or continuing with your studies.

Getting Ready to Learn will introduce you to the tools you will be using to aid your learning and provide an overview of the support services which will be crucial in getting the most out of your course.

Visit the Getting Ready to Learn (open access) page before you have enrolled to familiarise yourself with activities and resources that will help you prepare for your studies.

To take the course, you'll need to have completed your online enrolment.

When you have set up your USW IT account and completed online enrolment you will have access to the Getting Ready to Learn (Short Course) on Blackboard. You can visit the Getting Ready to Learn course at any time, but we would encourage you to complete it before you start your course or module induction.

The course has core and optional elements. Completing the core elements should take about 1.5-2.5 hours. There are some useful optional elements we recommend you explore.

On completion of the course, you will have a much better grasp of the key tools and services that you'll have access to during your time as a USW student.
