Orientation Our Way
At CQUniversity, Orientation is all about giving you the essential information you need to be a successful student.
"Have you ever read a map upside down? That’s what your uni studies can be like without Orientation." - Student Mentor, Alex
Orientation Our Way is a personalised, Orientation experience that combines opportunities to tune-in, come-in, and drop-in.
To create your personalised Orientation schedule:
- Complete the Countdown to CQUni Moodle unit,
- Register for Orientation TV,
- Register for the optional Orientation Boost drop-in sessions, and
- Register for the optional on-campus social events you would like to attend.
Orientation TV (OTV) is a live webinar delivered online by staff, fellow students, and alumni.
OTV brings you short, fast-paced, informative sessions. Tune in to learn about Student Life, How to Uni, and Course Essentials. International students must also attend a session called International 101. Attendance is compulsory.
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 OTV sessions. Visit the Orientation Boost web page for a full list of sessions - coming soon.
Term 1 2021 registration opening soon.
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. 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 Countdown to CQUni, follow the link below, log in with your student number and password, and self-enrol into ORIE12345: Countdown to CQUni.
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.
