Dean’s letter – End of Semester 1, 2024

Dear students,

Congratulations on another successful and enjoyable semester. We are now in the SWOT Vac period and I trust you are all using this time to prepare for exams to the best of your ability.

It is important to balance studying hard with looking after your mental health and well-being. The University has support services and academic skills resources to give you tips on exam preparation. If you ever feel overwhelmed, you can reach out for further support. And remember, the semester break is on the horizon and you can enjoy a well-deserved break.

I would like to remind you that applications for self-sourced Business & Economics Internships and WorkHub for Semester 2 close at the end of May (Friday 31 May). The deadline for applications for university-sourced internships has passed. WorkHub is an innovative, on-campus experience that offers you the opportunity to complete a for-credit internship spanning 12 weeks. An internship is an excellent way to try out a career and make connections who may help you find a new role after graduation, so it is something to consider in future if you cannot make the application this time.

During the mid-year break, you might be, like many of our researchers, taking the opportunity to travel overseas. If instead you would like to go abroad as part of your studies, you might be interested in learning about student exchange opportunities, international business experience at an overseas partner institution, and international case competitions. You will need to apply early so check the application dates.

I appreciate your cooperation and patience with the ongoing construction work in the foyer and ground level of The Spot Building. We are working to complete this project as soon as possible so you can enjoy the refurbished, refreshed shared spaces in this area.

Best of luck with your exams. When they are over, I hope you relax and enjoy your time off. Stay safe during your break and I look forward to seeing you back on campus for the start of Semester 2.

All the best,
