Orientation marks the beginning of your university studies and is designed to help you settle into life at university. Orientation Week will provide you with information to fully prepare you for the start of semester, in addition to familiarising you with the services and facilities available on each campus.
Orientation will help you to find your way around campus, introduce you to your studies and put you in touch with the staff in your area of study. It is also a great opportunity to meet the other students that you will be studying with. Orientation is about becoming familiar with your surroundings and knowing where to go for assistance should you need it.
During Orientation Week there will be a number of sessions to attend depending on the course you are enrolled in and whether you are an international or domestic student.
Orientation information is also available online - please visit Online Orientation.
Whether you are studying online or on campus, you will find lots of information on these pages that will help you make a successful transition to university. This includes information on learning and academic skills programs you can access, counselling and disability services, and university life in general.
Semester 1 2014 Orientation was 17-21 February. Did you miss it? We understand that not everyone can attend Orientation and we have designed our Online Orientation information to assist those of you who could not attend. If you need additional assistance, we recommend getting in touch with a Student Adviser to ensure you are aware of the full range of support services that are available to you.
You can also visit our new First Year at UTAS Facebook page and "like" it to get answers to all your questions in your news feed. We'll be posting and sharing info about events, services and opportunities that can help you have fun and do well in your first year at UTAS. Feel free to post questions on the page and we'll answer within 24 hours. You can also speak confidentially to a Student Adviser by sending an inbox through the page. Got questions?
