Kalgoorlie Orientation

Whether it’s your first time studying at university, or your first time studying in Kalgoorlie, Orientation is your opportunity to get to know your new surroundings and set you up for a successful study experience.

Your Orientation is made up of three key steps:

  1. Completing key tasks before O-Week
  2. Attending the Kalgoorlie Campus O-Week events
  3. 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.
