    What are the ramifications of 'it not counting towards my qualification'? Any clarification would be great.
    NCCW (Not to count for Credit With) means that if you have taken any of the NCCW units listed, the unit you are looking at taking will not be counted for credit. It essentially means that you are not allowed to take the unit if you have taken any of the NCCW units listed. This stops people from taking units they already know the content of, which would give them an unfair advantage over others. For example, the beginners German unit GMN104 has the NCCW of 'HSC German Extension or Continuers Band 4, 5 or 6'. This stops anyone who is already clearly pretty good at German from taking the beginners course, where they would blitz everyone else and gain an HD without any effort. Think of it as an anti-prerequisite.

    I'm going to organise my enrolment on the 17th Feb. Does anyone know what the parking situation is? When I attended Open Day, it was free parking, are the enrolment days the same or do you have pay for casual parking? If so, where do I organise this? Thanks in advance.

    Enrolment Preparation Session (EPS) is a compulsory day designated, where you go on-campus to be told some stuff about your units, register your units, create your timetable, collect your campus card and some other miscellaneous things if need be.

    You complete it by registering though here: https://secure.mq.edu.au/enrolment/register

    On the other hand, EPS has already started from the 6th O_o;;

    Ok, all links and info updated for 2013.

    Please pay attention to the note in red. If you don't understand the timetable, it's not your fault, it's the fault of the numbskulls getting a paid a mint to do ONE FUCKING THING RIGHT, and screwing it up anyway.

    Re: New Students 2012: What to do after receiving your offer

    Question, I have yet to get my TFN so I can't fill out my HECs form. I ordered a form so I should be getting it done soon.
    But I still have no idea how long would it take, should I call up the ATO and explain my situation?
    However I have accepted the offer.

    Will this put me in a disadvantage when it comes to the whole figuring out my timetable and getting a mentor via uniwise etc?

    I would really really appreciate a response because this has been bugging me for a whole week!

    It's not letting me edit ^

    But my question basically is that does it matter doing all the things required a little bit later or would it have an impact? Sorry I should have clarified.

    Re: New Students 2012: What to do after receiving your offer

    Hey, I know that the teaching structure has been left out of the timetables but I'm hoping someone can go off previous experience and help me out.

    I intend on taking PHIL137 and looking at its timetables its giving "...Lecture_1" and "...Lecture_2". My understanding is that this means these are two separate lectures with different content in, and as such need to attend both.

    Is it possible that anyone can confirm this?

    Thanks.

    Re: New Students 2012: What to do after receiving your offer

    Am I the only one yet to do an enrolment session?

    Mine's on Monday.
    I dont think i can enrol into units until then?

    I seriously dread my timetable for this semester...

    Hey theism. I had my enrol on Wednesday. Monday is indeed the last enrolment session. You're correct that you can't enrol into your units / register in your classes for the timetable until you've received your academic advice and officially been accepted into your Degree.

    Thanks Will.

    Do you know how the enrollments are staged?
    I took an early offer but forgot about enrolment/orientation until the end of Jan.

    Is the last enrollment session mostly for those who transferred courses or unis?

    I remember last year when I transferred to Macq my enrollment session was also in the week before uni starts.

    Re: New Students 2012: What to do after receiving your offer

    The last one is usually for transfers and late round offers as well as any internationals for the last week. The last day is the worst as its credit for previous study day and takes the longest administratively.

    Re: New Students: What to do after receiving your offer

    Remember you can buy books cheaply through uni facebook groups. You can buy a more than good enough book for a fraction of the price. Also it's possible to borrow your text in the reserve and scan chapters at the library and get the machine to email it right to you. Also all units are required to provide you a copy of the textbook in the reserve (part of the library with 3 hour loans) so they should be there at least eventually.

Textbooks are often very expensive, cheaper alternatives to the Co-op book shop often include
    www.textbookexchange.com.au (for second hand text books- you will have to make an account to search)
    http://booko.com.au/ (for new and used price comparisons)
    If it gets to the point where semester is a few days away and you still haven't bought your textbooks i would buy them online from the Co-op; they have free and fast delivery which will save you having to line up for hours.
    Note that if you plan to buy from a website, you should do it several weeks before semester begins so that you receive them in time.
