You’ve made it. All the hard work has paid off and you’re finally a student at the University of Newcastle. Congratulations! It may seem like you’ve reached your end goal but this is just the beginning. A plethora of exciting, rewarding and sometimes challenging experiences are coming your way. Best to be prepared.
