Orientation events are not to be missed.
Orientation TV (OTV) is a virtual event that brings you live, fast-paced, informative webinar sessions including University Essentials, Student Life, and Course Essentials. As a new international student, it is important that you attend all OTV sessions. International students must also attend an OTV session called International 101. Attendance is compulsory.
In addition, you will be able to attend optional Orientation Boost sessions, allowing you to create a customised Orientation schedule based on what you need and want to know more about. These should be attended in addition to compulsory Orientation TV sessions.
For students who are studying onshore, there will also be on-campus activities to introduce you to the services and facilities on your campus and to other students and campus staff.
To register for OTV and Orientation Boost sessions, please visit the Orientation Our Way website.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students
At Orientation, you will find out about the facilities, support staff, university systems and other information that is helpful to start your student journey.
In addition to Orientaiton, you are required to complete Countdown to CQUni.
Countdown to CQUni is an introductory Moodle unit, designed to inform, motivate, and empower you with the information you need to know before you begin your studies.
This unit will help you start studying - before you start studying. It should be completed after you accept your offer and before starting your studies.
To access Countdown to CQUni, follow the link below, log in with your student number and password, and self-enrol into ORIE12345: Countdown to CQUni.

An individual orientation to set you up with CQUniversity’s IT systems is arranged on the Thursday prior to the start of your classes – see dates below. The time varies, depending on your geographical location.
