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
Complete the key tasks in OASIS
OASIS is where you can complete your enrolment, check messages and access Blackboard, Curtin’s learning management system.
Log in to OASIS to complete the tasks below:
Log in to OASIS and follow the prompts to enrol in your units. If you’re studying on campus, you can register for classes and create your class timetable.
Your Personalised Orientation Planner lists all of the compulsory Faculty sessions you need to attend during O-Week. You can also add any additional information sessions that you’d like to attend.
Log in to OASIS from Monday 14 January and select the ‘Plan your O-Week’ button to get started.
Unit outlines give you details of tasks, assessments, contact details for each unit you are enrolled in. Find your unit outlines in the ‘My Studies’ tab in OASIS. If they’re not available to view yet, check back closer to the start of the semester.
