Orientation Week

What you need to know before classes begin

At Orientation Week (27 February - 3 March 2017), you will get to know what life is like as a university student and make the essential preparations for the semester ahead.

You've accepted your offer, completed enrolment, and you're ready to start your first semester. Congratulations! University life is a new experience, with new concepts, new challenges and new opportunities, and Orientation Week is where you'll lay the foundations for success.

To get the most out of Orientation Week, make sure you:

  • attend your official faculty welcome and learn the specifics of completing your courses
  • go along to some free information sessions and workshops and gain the key skills you need for studying at university

To cap it all off, revel in the fun and social events of OWeek, the three-day festival hosted by the University of Sydney Union.
