WELCOME TO TERM 4!
The final term of the year, the air is slowly getting warmer, we’re seeing more sunshine, and we’ve got Halloween just around the corner! This is the final stretch before summer break, so as per usual it’s time to buckle down and get those assessments planned out and ready.
Make note of all your due dates as early as you can, so that you can organise your study time and plan for the rest of the term.
As you are aware, classes are now underway so it’s time to put together your weekly routine, including sleep schedules, study time and much needed relaxation time in between. The earlier you get your weekly/fortnightly routine sorted out, the easier it will be to maintain throughout the term and keep the healthiest mindset!
Keeping the same routine throughout the term will help to keep all learnt information in your working memory and make assignment and exam work much easier.
Firstly, welcome to ALG! We hope your first weeks here have been fun and interesting!
Please ensure that you have your USI entered on the student portal, as we require this in order to be able to issue any qualifications during your time with the Australian Learning Group.
In the orientation course on Canvas, ensure to upload a photo (jpeg format) for your student ID so that your Student Experience team will be able to print your ID’s and have them ready for you.
For our Sydney and Melbourne students, we can send you a copy via email and you will be able to come and collect it once our campuses reopen.
Please contact your Student Experience Team if you have any questions or concerns. See below campus contact information.

📍SYD, MEL & BNE
Ruben is one of our Sydney Fitness Trainers at ALG.
“I arrived in Sydney 9 years ago, and I started my fitness studies in the same college where I am teaching today ALG, and this for me is very exciting. Two years ago I started my own business as a Personal Trainer and I specialise in Body Transformations. I am also very passionate about helping my clients to create a strong mindset and support people to follow their dreams and passion, this passion led me to write and publish my first book ‘How to become your superhero’.
I believe that at this moment more than ever it is important to meditate or learn how to meditate. Because only when we are connected with ourselves we will be able to receive inspiration and move in the direction of what we really want.
By understanding who we really are and became the fittest version of ourselves, as there are no distractions and no excuses.”
