    Hello future WSU students,

    Just starting a roll call thread for y'all to get to know each other once offers start rolling in tonight and tomorrow (I had a congrats from UAC offer at around 12:45am and could log in to MyWestern).

    I'm going into second year so if you have any questions feel free to ask either here or message me, or any of the other students that lurk around these forums.

    Introduce yourself below (you need to practice your responses for a week of introductory classes, after all) and celebrate!

    Congrats on offers everyone, and welcome to WSU!

    Does it work if you go to here: https://www.westernsydney.edu.au/mywestern and log on, and then go to vUWS from there?
    Course outlines will be available through vUWS, but I don't think you'll have access to them yet. I can't remember when we got access to them last year, maybe keogh13 can.

    Have you tried getting to vUWS via MyWestern? Log into MyWestern and on the side menu there should be "Home" "Email" then "vUWS" and it should log you in automatically (vUWS is just what they call our Blackboard). There won't be much on there currently except "MBBS Course Hub" which has got student policy, advice and staff information for the School of Medicine. The actual course Foundation of Medicine 1 which has course outlines etc will open probably towards the end of January, but I can't say for sure.

    Our knowledge on this is a little sketchy because we're the last group completing the MBBS, and you are doing MD - so we never did "Clinical Sciences". But my understanding is that you enrol in Doctor of Medicine as your course, and Clinical Sciences 1 as your unit for first year.

    Yep! If you look at the handbook for the MD (Course) and scroll down the page, you'll see the only unit for the first year is 'Clinical Sciences 1'. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though. There should be a 1H (first half) and 2H (second half) option - regarding the two semesters. You can enrol for both now, as long as you at least enrol for 1H.

    Your timetable should be a mix of classes on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This can range from approximately 8am to 5pm, some are compulsory and some are not. Then on either Tuesday or Thursday you'll have 1.5 hours of ICM, which is attendance at the hospital, the day on which you don't have ICM is a free day.

    If your timetable is the same as ours (no guarantee because the course has changed) then you should be at uni Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with a ~1.5 hour class at Blacktown or Macarthur hospital on Tuesday or Thursday.

    Congrats on the offers everyone! And to those who unfortunately didn’t get one this year, don’t give up!

    Just out of curiosity how did everyone feel they went in the interview as opposed to their result today (either accepted or declined)?

    OH MY GOODNESS, SO SO SO EXCITED!! CONGRATS EVERYONE :)

    I felt my interview was half and half. Some stations when really well and others horribly. Guess I must have done okay though.

    I've just finished AdvSci at Macquarie.
