Resources and Support
The University and School provide an abundance of resources and support to meet the needs of our research candidates.
MyUni is the University of Sydney Student Portal that connects students to all of the core services and information they need during their studies at the University. It brings together different 'channels" of information. A channel is a different compartment within the Portal's pages. For example, there are channels on how to use the ITS Help Desk and information about student computer services, library services, student scholarships, specialised learning centres, special information channels for international students, casual employment and student accommodation channels. The Portal allows you to personalise settings and to make changes to the layout of channels and to colour themes.
