Most students start their first year at Uni with a plan for how they are going to study and balance other commitments. But few students have a plan for how they are going to take care of their physical and mental health – which are also important factors in learning and achieving your best results at Uni.
There are 3 options. Select ONLY ONE option this semester. You are welcome to select a different option next semester if you are still enrolled in any first year course at UQ. If you are enrolled in PSYC1030 or NEUR1020, you can get up to 6 credits for participation – sign up through SONA and find the Sharper Minds project

Option 1 Surveys only
Click here. There is one survey now, and you will be sent a link to a second survey at the end of semester. Both surveys have been reviewed by students and take about 15 minutes to complete. This data will help us to understand what is causing stress to first year students and ways that you are coping with it.
Option 2 Surveys + App tracking.
Click here to complete online Surveys now and at the end of semester (each survey takes about 15 minutes) and to use the Sharper Minds web App to monitor how you are going each week of semester in six domains: study, healthy eating, sleep, physical activity, social connection, and mood. Each App entry takes about a minute, and you will be able to see a graph of how you are going across the semester.
Option 3 Online Courses.
Sharper Minds offers several short courses (e.g., 4 weeks x 1 hour) with strategies to help you in one of the six health domains. The courses will be delivered online in small groups of around 8 students, with groups starting on various dates across the year. All groups will be in real time with trained facilitators so that students can ask questions and make friends in your group. To evaluate the effectiveness of the courses, you will also be asked to complete 2 online Surveys – one now and one at the end of semester, each survey takes about 15 minutes. Please page on to find out more about the courses and to register your interest.
