Pre-Orientation trip

Kick off your studies by joining us on the Pre‑Orientation trip.

What better way to ease into Aussie life than a weekend escape to the spectacular coastline along the Great Ocean Road? Eat Aussie tucker, learn to surf, see the iconic Twelve Apostles – and there’s even a good chance you’ll run into a koala or two! This is a fantastic opportunity for you to make some friends before the start of the official Orientation.

You will receive information about this trip once you accept your offer. Limited spaces are available.
