2. Visa and Passport
Make sure you have a valid student visa and a passport with at least six months validity.
3. Orientation Week
Orientation week is a fun, friendly introduction to study and campus life in Australia. It is important for you to attend to get to know your campus, make new friends and prepare yourself for study. When booking your flights, make sure you will arrive in time to attend. You can find out more about orientation week here.
Allow yourself plenty of time to arrange accommodation as it can quickly book out. There are a range of options that are close to campus with easy access to public transport. Details can be found here.
5. Free Airport Pickup
As part of our scholarship offerings, we can arrange for someone to pick you up from the airport. They will hold up your name and wait for you so you will have safe and efficient transport to your accommodation.
6. Student Learning Advisors
We have a team of advisors ready to assist you to get settled in and find their way around campus. You can always reach out to our advisors if you need any kind of help in future. To book a time, hop on to the Digital Campus, navigate to “Support” and then “Book an Appointment Here”.
Laptops are essential. Having a laptop will allow you to engage with your learning material, complete required course assessment and remain up to date with college communications.
8. Microsoft Office 365
You will be sent instructions to download and install Microsoft Office 365 on your laptop at no cost – once you accept your offer, receive your COE and access the Digital Campus.

10. Make the most of learning
You are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Make sure to arrive with an open mind, a willingness to listen and engage with your classmates.
We look forward to welcoming you on campus soon!
