Discounted travel for International students
Since early 2013, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has made reduced price MyMulti 2 and MyMulti 3 travel passes available to international students, providing better access to safe and affordable public transport options.
To find out more, go to the Discounted travel for International students page.
For various reasons you may require information about your study or course progress to provide to immigration, your sponsor or your employer. This information is available in MySR and on the UWS website free of charge.

- How can I find information about my progress to course completion?
- How can I find confirmation of my upcoming graduation ceremony?
- How can I find information about my course progression?

- I want my family to visit me while studying at UWS - can the University give me a letter to invite them?
How can I find information about my progress to course completion?
The progress to completion screen in MySR (opens in a new window) provides you with information about the course requirements you have already met, and what course requirements you are still required to complete in order to graduate from your course.
How can I find confirmation of my upcoming graduation ceremony?
You will receive two emails from the Assessment and Graduation Unit – one detailing your eligibility to graduate and another with your ceremony details. These emails are sent to your student email account approximately six weeks before your ceremony for April and September ceremonies, and one week before December ceremonies (as the time period between results release and the ceremony dates for the December round is shorter). For more information, go to the Graduations page.
How can I find information about my course progression?
You can find your results for previous sessions in MySR (opens in a new window) as well as your course progress. Your grades will be checked against all progression rules after the results release date. If you do not meet the progression rules or are 'at risk' you will receive an email to your student email account with further instructions. For more information please see the Progression page.
How can I find information about University session breaks and travel and work implications?
Information about session breaks is available on the University's Academic year dateline. You should also consult the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (opens in a new window)website for information regarding travel and work implications during session breaks. The above information is available in MySR (opens in a new window) and on the UWS website free of charge.
I want my family to visit me while studying at UWS - can the University give me a letter to invite them?
Invitation letters to support visitor visas can be provided by close relatives already in Australia. Institutions such as universities do not issue invitation letters. For more information on visitor visas, go to the Department of Immigration's checklist (opens in a new window).
If you would like to invite relatives to your graduation ceremony, you can use the Graduation ceremony details email that the university issues.
