What is Orientation?

Orientation is all about getting to know your faculty, campus, classmates and the student culture that makes UOW special. Not only is orientation a lot of fun, it also helps you to settle into life as a UOW student. 

Why you need to come!

If the fact that there is free food isn’t enough to entice you, here are a few more reasons to come along

  1. Attend your faculty orientation session

    These sessions teach you about what you can expect from your course, and what your faculty expects from you. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet your fellow classmates and some of your teachers who will take you through the important things you need to know for your first few weeks of uni.
