O-Week

O-Week (22 – 26 July 2019) is designed to help set you up for a successful first semester at university. It’s a fun-filled week of activities and events you won’t want to miss, so we’ve made it easy for you to plan your O-Week experience.

Your O-Week is made up of three elements:

  1. Compulsory academic sessions to introduce you to your course and key staff. Check the Personalised Orientation Planner in OASIS for your sessions
  2. Information sessions to help you transition into university life and develop the skills you need to have a successful semester. Choose the sessions you’d like to attend through your Personalised Orientation Planner in OASIS
  3. Entertainment and activities to help you get to know the campus, meet new friends and have fun. Check the schedule below for what’s on each day

Entertainment and activities

There’s more to O-Week than just attending your academic and Faculty sessions, with free entertainment and activities happening daily. You won’t want to miss out on all the fun!
