Orientation for International Students
Student orientation at the University of Adelaide is about making friends, having fun, and finding the information and skills you need to survive and succeed in a new environment.
At the start of each semester, International Student Support runs an orientation program prior to the University-wide O'Week, and this is designed to help all new international students make a smooth transition to life and study in Adelaide. In addition to welcoming you to the University of Adelaide, we will introduce you to local students, the city of Adelaide, and the local community.
When You Get Here
When you arrive in Adelaide, if you are in need of orientation information, please visit the international student welcome area, located in Hub Central (University Map reference J10).
Orientation for Semester 1 2017 commenced on 15 February 2017, and concluded on 24 February 2017. If you are arriving in Adelaide after this date, please visit Ask Adelaide in Hub Central for orientation information.
