When do I need to arrive in Sydney?

Aim to arrive in Sydney at least a couple of weeks before semester starts, so you have more time to settle in, meet people and do some sightseeing before classes begin. 

It's important that you participate in Orientation events to help you settle into university life. These events are your chance to have all your questions answered through a series of welcome events, workshops and information sessions. Most of these events take place in the week before your first class – usually in late February for Semester 1 and late July for Semester 2.
