Orientation TV

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.

Orientation Boost

The Orientation Boost series offers additional, optional 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 compulsory Orientation TV sessions.

Drop-in sessions include HECS-HELP Explained, Student Services and Amenities Fees Explained, Student ID Card Help, How to Balance Life, Work and Study, and more.

Orientation Online

Orientation Online is compulsory for new students. Modules, videos, and quizzes will introduce you to our learning management system, Moodle, as well as other essentials.

It should be completed after you accept your offer and before the start of term. We recommend taking this at your own pace and allowing at least one hour for each module.


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.
