Welcome to Endeavour

Welcome to the commencement of your studies with Endeavour College of Natural Health!

Now that you’re enrolled you will want to prepare yourself for starting study.

To assist you in your preparation we recommend doing the following to ensure you’re more than ready.

O-Week

O-Week activities are held at each campus during the first week of your semester/trimester studies.

This is a valuable opportunity for you to find out more about your course, meet other new students, and familiarise yourself with your campus.

You can view the O-Week schedule of activities by visiting our events page and selecting your Campus or by speaking to a member of Students Services or Reception.

Student Portal

The Student Portal is accessed via the website and serves all students to enable you to take greater control of your study.

It is important to familiarise yourself with eportal as it provides you the ability to:

  • Update your personal details

You can log in to eportal using your student number as your user ID and your full date of birth (ddmmyyyy) as your Password (if you are logging in for the first time). You can change your password once you’ve logged on. eportal access is available 24 hours after confirmation of your enrolment.

Endeavour’s enabling courses are free self-paced courses delivered online for students who would like to increase their knowledge in preparation for study. Courses are offered in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Study Skills.

Discover your current level of knowledge by first completing the Learner’s Discovery Quiz. This multiple choice quiz will assist in determining exactly which enabling courses you focus on.

The enabling courses are designed to provide you with introductory knowledge in the Sciences to better prepare you for studying at a tertiary level. The courses are easily accessible on the Endeavour Learning Management Site (LMS) and can be accessed any time. When you receive your log in details for the LMS you will be able to access the enabling courses at your leisure.
