Coming to university can be a daunting experience. To help make your transition to ANU as smooth as possible, we offer all new students a week-long orientation program which includes:

  • on-campus Orientation Week prior to class commencement
  • activities and events to get to know ANU
  • pre-arrival webinars
  • a new student orientation session, both in person and online
  • a meet and greet service at the airport or bus station
  • access to mentoring programs for eligible students

Your first-year experience

The First-Year Experience program supports students from rural, regional and remote areas to form a community, grow their independence and improve their chance of success at ANU. The program provides an extended transition process through a series of workshops, events and group discussions throughout the year.
