LinkWeek is held in Week 2 of each Semester and provides opportunities for new and current UWA students to ‘link’ back into essential resources and information relating to study and life at University.

 

LinkWeek is held in Week 2 of Semester because:

  • It is the final week for you to add units.
  • As a new student you will have completed one week of your full study program (lectures, labs and tutes)
  • you may be feeling overwhelmed with the study requirements.
  • It provides a safety net to students who have not yet developed links with the university campus, staff and student community.
  • Demonstrate a university wide commitment to enhancing the university experience.
