Orientation events are not to be missed. Orientation at CQUniversity consists of compulsory and optional events and activities, allowing you to create a customised schedule.

Orientation TV (OTV) are live webinars delivered online by staff, fellow students, and alumni. OTV brings you short, fast-paced, informative sessions where you will receive the essential information you need to commence your studies. Attending all OTV is compulsory for international students, including the session called International Student Essentials.

All About Uni Workshops are additional online drop-in sessions. Staff will present demonstrations and how-to's based on the topic of the workshop. Book the workshops you would like to attend based on what you need and want to know more about. These workshops should be attended in addition to the compulsory OTV sessions.

Campus Experience is your chance to get to know your local CQU campus, meet fellow students and CQU staff as well as be introduced to CQU support services. It is strongly recommended that students attend these on-campus events, especially international students. For futher information and to register for Orientation events, please visit the the Orientation website.
