Orientation at UNE — your university journey starts here

Orientation at UNE is delivered in different ways depending on your mode of study (either on-campus or online) and is based on your commencing study period.

All students (regardless of study mode) should complete Online Orientation known as UNE101, (please check your UNE email account for details); on-campus students are also required to attend orientation programs at the Armidale campus.

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

Your student advisor

If you are a commencing student enrolled in Trimester 3, 2019, 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 and provide some tips for your transition into university.

You will also receive an email upon enrolment, welcoming you and providing initial information. Make sure to check your email regularly and once you receive this, you can book your call from your student advisor at the time that best suits you!
