Perth Campus Orientation
Orientation is the important first step to set you up for a successful first semester at Curtin.
Your Orientation is made up of three key steps:
- Completing key tasks before O-Week
- Attending O-Week and your compulsory Faculty sessions
- Getting involved in workshops and events during your first four weeks of semester
Semester 2, 2020 O-Week will be held on Monday 20 July to Friday 24 July 2020.
