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.
Campus orientation programs will be available in mid-December 2013.
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.
