Graduate Students who attend the graduate school workshops through the academic year will be automatically entered to win graduate school related promo items and gift cards. The more workshops you attend, the greater your chances of winning!

Online and Distance students:

In an effort to effectively enhance the support and student experience for our online students and distance students, we will create online specific content (modules) that are customised to your experiences and needs. Information on these offerings will be provided in the near future.
