Are you ready to return to study in 2022?


We’ve created the ultimate to-do list to make sure you have everything you need to launch into this new session of study!

You’ve enjoyed a well-deserved break from studying and uni life, but now it’s time to start planning for Session 1 2022.

We’ve created the ultimate to-do list to make sure you have everything you need to launch into this new session of study!

1. Re-enrol

Have you checked your enrolment for Session 1? Be sure to add your subjects by Census date (Friday 25th March, 2022) to lock in your classes and avoid extra costs!

Find your course requirements in your handbook and talk to your Course Director if you have questions about your enrolment, study load or subjects.

2. Organise fees

Have you planned how you will pay your study fees? You may choose to pay your course fees upfront or defer the payment via HECs.

Track important dates in a calendar, such as pay days, fee due dates and Census dates to manage your spending. Creating a payment plan now will ensure a smooth run to graduation, so you can focus more on studying.

3. Build your timetable

Plan your study schedule and lift your time management game! Save key dates in an organised diary and include sufficient time for assignments and exam prep.

If you’re studying on-campus, check your class timetable with MyTimetable. From Monday 7th February, you will be able to view your classes and choose your preferred classes where available.

If you’re studying online, check your Residential School requirements and plan your travel.

4. Textbooks and equipment

Check your textbooks and equipment list in your Subject Outline, available two weeks before session starts.

You have plenty of options to get your hands on the prescribed texts before classes begin – buy them new or second-hand, or borrow from the library.

5. Workplace learning

Do you have workplace learning requirements in the upcoming session? Practical components are a major part of most courses and you can find all the information you need in your course handbook.

Check placement dates, expectations and costs to plan ahead. You may also need to organise accommodation and uniforms.

6. Scholarships and grants

To help cover the cost of fees, textbooks or work placement, now’s also the time to apply for scholarships.

Use the online search tool to find out which scholarships and grants you may be eligible for. Be sure to apply before before closing dates!

7. Prepare for next sessions subjects with Study Link

If you’re looking for ways to get ahead or bridge your knowledge gaps for next session then Study Link is for you! Whether you are studying for the first time, returning after a break or just need to brush up, Study Link offers the subjects you need, at your pace.

8. Keep up to Date with how COVID-19 may impact your study

Whether you are an on campus or online student you should also read about how COVID-19 may impact your studies.

9. Final checkpoints

Deciding where you are going to live while studying, can be a huge decision. Many on campus options are available to all Charles Sturt students. Make sure you read up on the accommodation that best suits you and your lifestyle.

While you are busy researching, jump into your Student Portal and view the various workshops and events on offer or look up the library workshops to help you have a great start to Session 1 2022!
