What makes a successful online student?
When it comes to postgraduate study, the old adage rings true – you only get out what you put in. However, there are a few things you can do to make sure you’re successful as an online student.
- When you first login to the OLE, complete the Student Orientation.
This is the perfect way to ease yourself into online study. The Student Orientation ensures you know exactly what the structure, aims and outcomes of the programmes are.
- Familiarise yourself with the OLE – get used to structure of the programme, how discussion forums work and where to access extra resources and libraries.
- Schedule regular times to study each week – with self-directed study, we find carving out regular times, in your busy schedule, to learn each week is the best way to stay on top of your workload.
- Participate in online classes and discussions – you’ll attend online classes with other students with your Tutor on a weekly basis. Get the most out of this peer interaction by contributing thoughtfully and frequently.
- Get in touch – Your Tutors, Mentor and Student Support teams are all here to help. If you’re unsure of something, don’t hesitate to contact us.
