Student Sizzle—AU Social Media

Following What's Hot!

Faithe wonders how other students manage five courses—one at a time, or work on all five simultaneously; responses show that each student finds their own method after exploring the options.  Mhairi asks if textbooks need to be returned when dropping a course within the 30-day window; responders say yes.

Other posts include an APA style video, easy humanities electives, early access to courses, submitting SINs through myAU, and courses LGST 489, NUTR 331, and SOCI 301.


A student wonders if there’s any way to pass a course with a fail on the mid-term (and a pass is a requirement); responses suggest it’s unlikely but worth asking the tutor or course coordinator.
