You should review your AIP:

This is to ensure your study strategies are up to date and relevant to your current circumstances.

If you review your AIP and you feel the information is still current, you may keep your AIP as is. If anything on your AIP is no longer current, you should complete a new AIP to update the information.

You can access your previously completed AIPs or the link to complete a new AIP via your Student Centre > Academic Progress tile.
