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.

Online Orientation - Trimester 3, October 2020

Your Orientation Program takes place entirely in a Moodle unit named UNE101 and comes in two parts. Part one is a series of video recordings covering topics including;

  • Student Support
  • Uni & UNE Essentials
  • IT & Technology
  • Moodle Intro (our online learning system)

There are also presentations from various departments including the Oorala Aboriginal Centre, UNE International, our Regional Study Centres and your First Year Advisors.

These videos are a great way to put faces to names and to get comfortable with some of the UNE software that you’ll use for your academic classes. You can find these within UNE101 under the ‘Trimester 3 Orientation Recordings’ button in your central welcome panel.

The self-paced content and activities that make up the UNE101 unit, form part two of your Orientation experience. Work through each of the tiles available to you in your own time, and be sure to ask any questions you might have in the Forums tile and our student advisors will get back to you. Your self-paced content includes activities like completing the Academic Integrity Module, practicing an assignment submission, contributing to the forums and earning codes to receive your Study Ready Badge.

Trimester 3 Orientation online is for ALL new students, both domestic and international, online or on campus.

Please continue to check your UNE Student Email for all important updates and information.
