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.
If you are studying online we strongly recommend you make the time to go through the Online Orientation material below.
Semester 2 Orientation is scheduled for 8-12 July 2013. Programs are available for Hobart, Launceston and Cradle Coast campuses below:
International students please note, you will need to attend both the International Orientation session on your campus and the Faculty Session.
