What is Orientation?

Orientation is a great opportunity to get to know our academic and campus teams, meet fellow students and find out more about your course and learning environment.

There will also be plenty of food, games and activities for you to try! Family and loved ones are welcome to join you to celebrate the beginning of your study journey with us.
