Orientation at UNE — your university journey starts here

Orientation at UNE is delivered in different ways depending on your mode of study and is based on your commencing study period.

All students should complete the Online Orientation unit - UNE101, (please check your UNE email account for details).

Orientation is important and it is designed to help you make a successful transition into study.

The Theme for Orientation 2020 is Communities. We want to celebrate all the many and diverse communities that make up the community of scholars at UNE, wherever you may be in the world and however you choose to study with UNE.

Your student advisor

If you are a commencing student enrolled in Trimester 3, 2020, you will soon receive a call from one of our student advisors. Your student advisor will ask how you are going with your preparation for university study, answer any questions you might have about your enrolment, and provide some tips for your transition into university.

When you enrol at UNE, you will receive a welcome email providing you with some important information about your next steps. Make sure to check your email regularly as that's how the university gets information out to its students. Once you get your email, you can book your call from your student advisor at the time that best suits you.

Another good way for all students to keep informed, receive important updates, and interact with University support staff and other students is via social media. You can like and follow the Student Success Facebook Page, follow us on Instagram, or sign up to the Insiders' Guide blog for regular information and features.
