Before you begin to navigate your way through university, it helps to orient yourself. And the best way to do that is by joining us at orientation day. We can't wait to give you a hero's welcome

What happens at orientation

Starting your first year of study is exciting, but it can also have a lot of unknowns. We get that this can be daunting. That’s why orientation is designed to be fun and informative, and to give you opportunities such as:

  • taking a virtual campus tour
  • participating in course introductions and live Q&A sessions
  • learning about the student services and support available to you
  • discovering our line-up of social clubs and activities.
