Orientation is a personalised experience that will help you find your way to a successful first term
At CQUniversity, Orientation is all about giving you the essential information you need to be a successful student.
"Have you ever read a map upside down? That’s what your uni studies can be like without Orientation." - Student Mentor, Alex.
Take this opportunity to meet and connect with your peers, mentors, and academics, learn about student life, and discover the variety of support services available to assist you in reaching your academic and personal goals.
The Orientation program consists of compulsory OTV sessions, as well as optional Orientation Boost sessions, Campus Experience events, and Academic Learning Centre (ALC) workshops, allowing you to create a customised schedule. In addition to these activities, the self-paced Countdown to CQUni Moodle unit should be completed before starting your studies.
Orientation TV (OTV) is a live webinar with an engaging, television-show-style format where you will receive the essential information you need to commence your studies. OTV brings you short, fast-paced, informative sessions whilst allowing you to connect with other students and staff.
The Orientation Boost series offers additional, optional drop-in sessions, allowing you to create a customised Orientation schedule based on what you need and want to know more about. These should be attended in addition to compulsory OTV sessions.
When you’re not busy tuning into OTV and dropping in for Orientation Boost, join a Campus Experience event.
These on-campus events are the perfect opportunity to meet and connect with fellow students, staff, and support services. Events will differ for each location and may include networking activities, campus tours, and market stalls.
