Orientation events are not to be missed.

Term 2 2021 Orientation will be a live, virtual event called Orientation TV (OTV). OTV brings you live, fast-paced, informative webinar sessions including How to Uni, 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.
