Staying on Track

A University-wide run program, “Staying on Track” is designed to help students achieve their academic potential.

“The program allows the University to recognise when students are experiencing difficulty meeting the minimum academic progression requirements for their degree and provides students with a wide range of support services to assist with their ongoing studies.” from Sydney University website

If you feel that you are struggling academically, your first port of call should always be your lecturer. Often he/she can help you devise strategies to better stay on top of the required study and assignments. Another invaluable resource available to all conservatorium students are the academic advisors:
