Semester 1 2014 Orientation program - ADDITIONAL SESSIONS

On-campus orientation was held during the week beginning Monday 24th February 2014 and concluded on Thursday 27th February, however, due to popular demand we will be running an additional set of ‘Technical’ training sessions on Wednesday 12 March 2014 to help you come to grips with learning online, handling assessment requirements, using the library and conducting literature searches.

What you need to do:

  • Go to the registration page to register for the technical training sessions. Numbers for each session are limited - register early in January so you don’t miss out.
  • Before you go to your first technical session, come to Room 329 (the Office for Teaching and Learning) in the Edward Ford Building to collect your SPH Orientation ‘Start-up Kit’ (orientation notes) – a copy of this kit is also available to download on the SPH Student Support site .

Welcome Day - Saturday 1st March

Our Welcome Day gives you a chance to find out more about the School, its teaching and research and some of our key policies and procedures (for example the assessment policy). You will also find out about the support services the School/university offers.

The Welcome Day is a great opportunity for you to meet key staff members as well as your fellow students and ask any questions you may have.

We strongly recommend all new students attend this day. Morning tea and lunch are provided.
