Staying on Track questionnaire

The reflective questionnaire will help you identify what may be affecting your academic progression. Common reasons include study load, time management or procrastination, not enjoying your studies, home life, health, work and finances.

Based on your responses to the questionnaire, you will receive a webpage of relevant tips, advice and support services, such as Counselling and Psychological Services and the Learning Hub (Academic Language and Learning), that can help you address the issues you identified. This is your guide to Staying on Track and you can refer back to it at any time during your studies, simply login with your UniKey and password.

Access the Staying on Track self-reflective questionnaire online. Log in with your UniKey and password.

The University has a number of support services (pdf, 194KB) available to you to assist with challenges you may face.

Information sessions

Staying on Track information sessions will inform you about what it means to be at a particular stage and provide information about the support services available to help. During the session you will be encouraged to start developing an action plan for you to follow to get your studies back on track.

You can register to attend an information session online. Use your University student email to register.
