Enter your name correctly: Ensure you enter your full name while providing personal details in your online enrolment process. FHS students undergo a criminal records check before they can commence clinical placements. It is important that the name on your University student card matches exactly the name given on your other photo ID (e.g. driver’s license), including any middle name(s). Students with a name mismatch will not be able to collect their student cards (name corrections will then need to be made via the Sydney Student portal, see: “My Details > Personal Details”). For more information about Criminal Records Check.
