Six Steps to get you ready for the start of session.
Once you have accepted your offer and received your confirmation of enrolment (eCOE), the next step is to activate your student account (Western Account).
This will give you access to all our online services, including your student email account, My Student Records (MySR), the Library and more. You'll need your Western Student ID number.
You can find this number on your Offer of Admission letter.
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).
Class 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 subjects. After being allocated into your classes, you may be able to swap classes depending on availability.
To make sure you get the best start at Uni, you must attend the Orientation sessions above. These sessions are compulsory. Our dedicated International Orientation will give you an opportunity to learn more about the student services that are available to you, how to manage your study obligations as an international student, careers at Western, safety online and how university life will work for you. How to enrol and register for tutorials will also be included in this session. Check out our International Orientation page for more information.
Once you start classes your student email will be our official communication channel for all of your exam and Uni life information. You can access your student email from the MyWestern Student Portal. Please remember to check it regularly to avoid missing important information.
Check out the Student ID cards website for everything you need to know about getting your Student ID card.
Note: Offshore International Students do not need to undertake the Student ID Card process while overseas. You can get your Student ID Card once you arrive in Australia.
