What is the Orientation event?

It's an opportunity to find out more about your course and the services and support available to assist you at Western Sydney University. You will also have an opportunity to meet your teachers (academics) and fellow students, and discover your campus. You can organise your student ID card, get timetable support and collect your Student Diary.
