Bentley 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:

  1. Completing key tasks before O-Week
  2. Attending O-Week and your compulsory Faculty sessions
  3. Getting involved in workshops and events during your first four weeks of semester

Semester 1, 2020 O-Week will be held from Monday 17 to Friday 21 February 2020.

Program information will be available from mid-January.
