  • 5. #1 Build your confidence I don’t always go to uni but when I do, I don’t know a single soul…
  • 6. #1  Build your confidence It’s totally normal to have nerves about starting something new (especially if you’ll be flying solo), but the great news is that there’s an entire week dedicated to helping you explore your new study environment, meet new friends and get settled in!

That way you’ll be able to rock up to your first class on time, coffee in hand like a total university pro! Take a look through your USQ StudyDesk, where you’ll find forums, study tools and contact details for your lecturers and Student Relationship Officer.

  • 8. Pro Tip #1 If you’re an on-campus student, make the most of guided campus tours during O-Week. Not only do you get to stroll around your new grounds, but you’ve got the advantage of an experienced tour guide to answer all your questions and give you some insider tips.
  • 9. #2 Make a mate While we totally support the idea of a one-man wolf pack…
  • 10. #2  Make a mate There’s nothing better than a group of study mates to bounce your ideas off and where better to meet new friends than at O-Week? One of the greatest things about USQ is the diversity of our students, so whether you’re fresh out of school or heading back to study after some time in the workforce, you’re guaranteed to meet like-minded people during your studies. Don’t forget to spice up your social circle and make the most of opportunities to network with students from other study areas. A variety of perspectives will make study fun and enrich your uni experience.
  • 11. Pro Tip #2 Don’t forget to make mates outside of your school of study. If you’re on campus for O-Week don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with a variety of students. While you might be studying different courses, you’ll still see each other around campus all the time! Online? Be sure to post to your course’s social forum and use social media to reach out to students studying in other course areas.

That’s why we have plenty of the USQ team on-hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget that we’re only a phone call, email, comment or live chat away.
