CQUniversity is showcasing its diversity by holding dozens of Orientation activities in locations stretching from Cairns to Melbourne, as well as on-line, catering for all its various categories of students as well as parents and partners.
Students will be welcomed at a range of Orientation sessions on campus and on-line.
There are specialised sessions for distance students, international students, and Indigenous students, and even guidance for high schoolers engaging with the Start Uni Now (SUN) program.
Students can link to the Orientation Online program and other details via www.cqu.edu.au/orientation or check the specific campus programs for Rockhampton running from Feb 18-22.
Orientation provides an opportunity to meet academic and support staff, student mentors and other students. Sessions are designed to introduce students to academic life, support services and the administrative systems essential for them to manage their study program.
Orientation coordinator Dr Gemma Mann said the common factor is how “vital” it is for all new students to attend Orientation, or at least to get involved on-line, to ensure they are prepared for the study journey ahead.
“Orientation gives students the chance to meet key academics, program advisors and support staff and to find out what is important.
“We don’t expect them to be able to do everything in the first week … just to know what’s important for them to find out.”
Orientation Week includes social activities, entertainment, tours, program briefings and sessions on academic writing.
All commencing students:
In the Rockhampton region attend the Rockhampton campus for orientation. The Rockhampton Orientation is on 18th-22nd February and all On-Campus students and Distance Education students attend.
