Preparing for the start of semester
In the lead up to the start of semester, commencing students can prepare for their studies by undertaking the following:
- Location: Get to know your local campus by planning your journey.
- Key information: Read the relevant course information, and familiarise yourself with the College's Policies and Procedures and Student Handbook.
- Documentation: Complete your FEE-HELP application on the Student Portal by completing an eCAF (electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form) and providing proof of citizenship to the College.
- Student ID cards: Your student ID card is your proof that you're a student at Endeavour College of Natural Health, and all students (whether you studying online or on campus) must have one. Your card is used for borrowing items from the library, and acts as your identification during examination periods. Visit your local Endeavour Library to receive your ID card.
- Textbooks: The national textbook list outlines the titles relating to each subject and can be purchased online from Endeavour's Wellspring Bookstore or on campus in Brisbane. Semester 1 text book packs are also available for a great discount and you'll have all your books delivered in one go! Wellspring Bookstore offers free shipping to all campuses for collection or you can opt to have them delivered via regular post for a flat rate shipping fee.
