International Student Orientation

As an international student, you'll need to attend a special Orientation as part of your visa requirements.

It's a fun and informative session and we'll teach you a little bit about Australian culture at the same time!

You will be a part of our on-campus Orientation with all of your Aussie classmates and your unique session will be at the start of the program. Put the date in your diary now and don't miss it! We can't wait to meet you.

Online Orientation

Online Orientation (O-Orientation) is a dedicated resource to help new students navigate study life online. It is open to all new students but is especially useful for those who study remotely.

At O-Orientation you'll learn about:

  • creating a study space at home (or at the office, or at a friend's house!)
  • your IT requirements
  • Library and learning resources
  • the skills you already have (and how they'll help you to succeed)
  • support services just for you
  • plus more

And, you'll get to meet lots of other students in the forums who are studying in your faculty.
