Orientation events

Orientation TV (OTV) is a live webinar delivered online by staff, fellow students, and alumni.

OTV brings you short, fast-paced, informative sessions including How to Uni, Student Life, and Course Essentials. International students must also attend a session called International 101. Attendance is compulsory.

The Orientation Boost series offers optional, online drop-in sessions, allowing you to create a customized Orientation schedule based on what you need and want to know more about. These should be attended in addition to OTV sessions.

Drop-in sessions include 'Fees Explained', 'Mastering Moodle with the Academic Learning Centre', 'Never fear, the Library is here', 'Start your changemaking journey', 'Work, social, study balance', and more.

Please register for both OTV and additional drop-in sessions by completing the eForm below. During the registration process, you will be directed to the dates, times, and access links for each session. These details are also available online for Orientation TV and Orientation Boost.

Orientation Online

Orientation Online 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 uni - before you start uni. Take a guided tour of what to expect from Moodle units, learn about making a study plan and unit requirements, and organise your student life.

It should be completed after you accept your offer and before starting your studies. We recommend taking this at your own pace and allowing at least half an hour for each module. To access Orientation Online, follow the link below, log in with your student number and password, and self-enrol into ORIE12345: Orientation Online.


Starting university can be a challenging and rewarding experience. Orientation Our Way will give you the confidence and connections you need to make your first term a big success.
