Welcome Month Schedule
Be sure to check out our jam-packed Welcome Month schedule of activities where you can register for helpful workshops, social and sporting events and network with other students.
You're at the start of one of the most memorable periods of your life. Besides the many friends to be made, social life and other university mainstays, your time at university will challenge you, inspire you, and most of all prepare you for your future.
It is important that you enrol into your units and register for your tutorials. See the information below to get started now.
Enrolling is the first and most important thing you need to do when starting at Western Sydney University. You need to complete your enrolment in My Student Records (MySR).
Before enrolling, International Students must accept their offer and activate their account. Please view the How to Accept page for step by step instructions.
Tutorial Registration is how you choose your tutorials (and other classes) and put together your timetable. Allocate+ is the online system used to complete this process.
You'll need to make sure you are enrolled in all of your units. After being allocated into your classes, you may be able to swap classes depending on availability.
