Orientation

Before you start your course, you will be welcomed to Curtin at Orientation Week (O-Week). O-Week is mandatory for international students and you must arrange to arrive in Perth in time to attend.

At O-Week, you will be presented with a busy, fun-filled weeklong timetable of activities and information sessions that prepare you for your studies and allow you to familiarise yourself with the Perth Campus. There are social opportunities to meet other new students and have fun together, and you’ll receive useful information about visa conditions, overseas student health cover, enrolment and on-campus services.

The O-Week dates and your enrolment briefing times will be included with your Letter of Offer.
