AUSU Forums

AUSU forums provide an opportunity to talk online with other students.

AUSU forums is a student-only space to post messages for others to read and respond to. Discussions take place over time and remain online indefinitely. To start a discussion, post a message and come back later to check for replies. The system can e-mail you when replies are posted. Or, browse the older posts to see if someone already asked your question!

This is a great place to find out what the AU experience is like for others; share study tips; find out what others think about a course; get support when things get rough; and engage in discussion on an endless variety of topics.
