Orientation Week will introduce you to life and study at UQ. During Orientation, you can familiarise yourself with facilities on campus, and the sessions offered during this week will give you a clearer understanding of university life and processes to give you more confidence as you enter week one.

You can tailor your other Orientation activities by selecting those relevant to your program and personal interests through the online Orientation Guide. Select your program and all of the sessions applicable for that program will appear, and then add these to your Planner. You can then add other sessions you are interested in to your Planner and print out your specific Orientation Itinerary to get you through the week!

You should also attend one of our General Information Sessions prior to Orientation Week (semester one commencement only).
