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. It may also be the time that you can collect your student ID card and Student Diary.
When is Orientation?
Orientation sessions and activities are usually held on campus the week before Autumn, Spring and Summer sessions start.
At your Orientation session you will find out more information about your course, have the opportunity to meet academic staff, get to know other students from your course and ensure that you are prepared to start classes. As well as your course information session there will be library tours, campus tours, and other activities to participate in.
If you need help with your enrolment contact Student Central on 1300 668 370, email them at email@example.com or visit them on campus. For course information, contact your Academic Course Advisor.
During Autumn and Spring Orientation Week, librarians attend school orientation sessions to introduce themselves to students and to provide a familiar, friendly face in the Library. This introduction includes a short presentation designed to encourage students to explore our information discovery services and to join a Library tour.
Library orientation tours are designed to help you get familiar with the facilities and services of their campus library, online services and resources, and finding resources required for the initial weeks of University.
Following your Autumn or Spring Orientation course information session, you can take a campus tour with your peers. Facilitated by Ask Us Assistants (senior students), campus tours help to orientate you to services, facilities and important locations on your campus such as your School's building, the library, cafeterias and Student Central.
Peer workshops and activities
During Autumn and Spring Orientation Week, Ask Us Assistants facilitate workshops and other activities.
- Get advice and tips in the 'Hints and tips from senior students' workshop.
- Speak to a current student about any IT questions you have in our 'Ask Us IT' workshop - whether it's about University systems, software programs or computer basics.
- Find out when workshops and activities are available during Orientation in your campus Orientation program.
Mature age welcome
If you are a non-current school leaver that is returning to learning, you can meet other mature age students during Orientation Week. Attend one of the mature age welcome sessions when you are on campus for your Orientation course information session.
