Once you're enrolled

16 September 2023

Once your enrolment in the STAR programme is confirmed, you will receive an email with your enrolment details. Prepare for your study at UC with the following steps.


Next steps for all STAR students


Activate your UC student IT account

You will receive an email with a link to activate your IT account and set your password. If you have any problems setting your password, please contact our IT Service Desk (0508 UC IT HELP - 0508 824 843). You can reset your password here.


Access course material on LEARN

Log in to LEARN using your username and the password you created when activating your IT account. Course material (including assignments, recorded lectures and communication from lecturers and tutors) will be posted regularly on the relevant LEARN course page. You will have access to the LEARN course page for each course you are enrolled in shortly before lectures start. Course content will not be posted/emailed to you (including for distance courses).


Access your UC student email account

When you activate your student IT account you will be given a student email address ( Lecturers and tutors may communicate with you via this email address so you will need to check it at least once a week. Sign in to Outlook using your student email address and the password you set when you activated your IT account. 


Get required textbooks

Required and recommended textbooks will be listed on the Course page (searching by the course code) and possibly also on the LEARN course page. 

Text books can be purchased from the University Book Shop on campus or online. They should also be available to borrow from the UC Library. Secondhand textbooks may be available on the "UC Textbooks: buy, sell and trade" Facebook group


Extra steps for on-campus students


Get a Canterbury Card

A student ID card (called a Canterbury Card) will be needed if you want to get books out from the UC Library, do printing or photocopying on campus, or as a form of ID when sitting tests or exams on campus.  To get your Canterbury Card, visit the Security Office (114 Ilam Road) with a photo ID (such as a passport, drivers' licence or high school ID with photo). If you don't have a photo ID, take your birth certificate and STAR Enrolment Confirmation letter instead.

Get your timetable

Times of lectures, tutorials and labs for on-campus (C) courses is normally found on the relevant course page (searching on the course code). You can choose your tutorial stream in the myTimetable system once you have your IT account set up. For some courses this is done through the course site in LEARN instead. You will not have a timetable if you are studying by distance (D).
