Orientation week is your fun, friendly introduction to study and campus life. Your orientation day is a chance to make new friends, get a feel for our campuses (including the digital campus) and ask any questions you might have.

Your Orientation Program will be held over a number of days in the week just prior to the commencement of academic classes. We will host a series of activities and presentations during the week to help you transition smoothly into your study program.

Students will be notified of the dates of their Orientation Program during the Admissions process (dates are also available to view on our Key Dates page). 

Registration is essential, so make sure to keep an eye on your email inbox for your invitation and a link to reserve your spot.
