    • What is the difference between a tutorial and a lecture?
    • What is a day in the life of a UNSW student like?
    • What are the best ways to meet new people and be social?
    • Have I processed my enrolment properly? Who should I contact to ensure I have finalised my enrolment?
    • What do I need to do to help me settle in once I have enrolled?
    • Is there anything I should do to prepare over the holidays, before I start my first classes?
    • How is UNSW supporting students during COVID-19?
    • I'm worried about self-isolation impacting on my studies. Who can support me?
    • I'm feeling pretty lonely because of self-isolation. How can I stay connected to the UNSW community?
    • The gym and fitness options on campus are closed because of COVID-19. How can I stay fit, healthy and connected?

And any other questions you can think of to help you with life as a UNSW student.

A note about COVID-19: the Live Chat Mentors are trained to support you during this global health crisis, however, they may refer you on to other services to make sure you get the most appropriate and relevant support for your needs.
