Welcome and orientation

Your introduction to university life
Don't miss the events, workshops and activities that we've planned to help you adjust to life as a university student.

Our Welcome Program takes place in the weeks leading up to the start of semester. Welcome activities include orientation events for our new students to help you get started at University. There are also activities for all students to participate in, as well as workshops to welcome back and support our continuing students as they transition into the next year of their studies. 

The Welcome Program includes events and sessions run by faculties, student support services, the University of Sydney Union (USU), clubs and societies and more.

You'll find out:

  • information about your course, teachers and classes
  • the basics of university study, including critical thinking and research skills
  • how and where to access student services and support
  • information about career planning, overseas study opportunities and other ways to make the most of your time at university
  • making new friends and expanding your networks
  • help with living independently.

Make sure you regularly check your University email address, as you'll receive invitations and updates about our Welcome Program.
