Sydney School of Veterinary Science Orientation Activities for Undergraduate Students


Orientation and leadership activities are an integral part of the School’s programs and commence during orientation. We have arranged an interesting and informative program for you. The activities are planned to introduce you to the School and University, and give you fun opportunities to meet the other members of your year. They include:

  • Small and large group activities that will introduce you to your peers,
  • A tour of the Camden campus to help you find your way around
  • Short presentations about School and University support services

During the orientation program you will be familiarised with both the Camden campus including teaching and other facilities, be introduced to key staff, have the opportunity to join our active Student Societies, and commence or continue your journey towards professional and personal leadership. You will also have the opportunity to socialise and start to build the friendships that will be important during your student and professional careers. Staff and senior students are available throughout the program to answer questions about the curriculum.

Please note: full catering (morning tea and lunch) will be provided for students who RSVP and pay for the program. Information on registration and payment will be sent to all commencing students via email. If you have not received this email by Tuesday, 14th of February, please contact the .

We also recommend attending the general University of Sydney O-Week activities on the Camperdown campus. View the full program of activities.

What is the best thing about attending the School Orientation?

This is what some of our past participants said:

  • Meeting people in my course before the first lectures,
    getting to know them and making friends.
  • Being placed into small groups and developing friendships
    with the people doing our course.
  • The interaction between students and lecturers.

So come and join us!

All members of the School, staff and students alike, are welcome to take part in the fun.
