Good luck in your exams!
We hope you’re feeling rested and prepared for Semester 1 exams and final assessments. Make sure you double-check your timetable and leave enough time for transport and locating the correct room. It’s also a good idea to have a final read through the exam procedures. Good luck!

Students light up the city
What happens when music, medical science and design students and staff work together? Head to Central Park and behold DesignINK Ecology, a dazzling Vivid exhibition featuring student-created films illuminating the huge digital wall. And if you’re heading to Circular Quay for Vivid, don’t miss Vision^(Reflection), the kaleidoscopic artwork created by journalism student Tong Jia and a team of Chinese artists. This week is your last chance to catch both!
