Your 2023 Semester 1 Orientation starts with an online session on Monday 23 January.  Your course-specific orientation will generally be on your first day of class from Tuesday 24 January onwards. Please see below the details for course specific orientations that will be held via Zoom. All other course specific orientations will be held in the classroom. Please see your timetable for further details by visiting our Timetables page.

Orientation is where you will find out all the information you'll need to nail your studies. Meet key staff that can assist you with your studies and find out about study assistance options, career counselling, access and equity, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander support, library services and other ways to obtain assistance. The session will also provide an overview of key systems and digital tools that you will need to access during your studies and how to find out more information about them.

Register for an online orientation session at a time that suits you.  You only have to attend one online orientation session. Additional online sessions will also be available for more detailed information on library services and cultural awareness.
