yeah so is mine, I was just wondering
it's not like they're going to check our surname or whatever before letting us in, is it? Does it really matter if I go to another one? Cause I'm getting clashes with other sessions

Actually I never thought of that myself...I think I'll take an earlier train and sneak into the 10:00-11:00 sesh. But my scheduled time doesn't clash with info sessions anyway so it's all good for me.

Nope, they won't check your IDs. Imagine 300+ students queueing up outside a lecture theatre to get their names checked :P

When is the UoM midyear break (between what dates precisely) and does it correspond with typical high school midyear holidays?

I looked at the diary but I just want confirmation

Principal Dates

Last day of exam period is 22 June (could be earlier depending on when your exam is. I know in my first year, my last exam was on the Friday of the first week). First day of semester 2 is 23 July.

Victorian School Term Dates

Mid-year break is 30 June - 15 July. So yup, definitely does correspond (plus a week each side for us lucky uni students!)

Technically you don't need to go at all.

So true.   Technically, you don't need to even go to uni at all the whole semester if you really cbf.  Or even your exams for that matter.*

*But it would of course, put your future as a UoM student in a very questionable position.

So would I advise it?  Hells no.  Go for the experience.  You can only be young once.  Who knows?  You could meet your future partner.

Important links
Student Webmail login, if you don't want to go through the portal. The uni is migrating to GoogleApps so you’ll probably get an offer to sign up for that.

This link is broken for me
