Welcome to Adelaide! We're here to help you prepare before you officially start your studies.


In the week before each semester, the University hosts Orientation Week (O'Week) to help new students adapt to their studies. During O'Week, you will:

  • Be officially welcomed to the University
  • Hear important information about your rights and responsibilities as an international student
  • Learn about the free academic and personal support services available to you
  • Have the opportunity to make friends and explore Adelaide through social events and excursions

O'Week is an essential first step in your journey as an international student, and it is important that you attend. For general information about Orientation, you can check the University's Orientation website

Semester 1 2023 O'Week will be held from Monday, 20 - Friday, 24 February 2023.

O'Week information


We hope that O'Week is an unforgettable introduction to your time at The University of Adelaide.
