Orientation

Welcome to all new students

Orientation is the best way to get to know your student community and the wide range of services and programs available to you.

The University’s Orientation program for Semester 1, 2023 begins on Monday 20 February. Save the date for your dedicated Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) Orientation, taking place on campus on Tuesday 21 February. You’ll be invited to join a range of social and informative activities designed to help you Find, Belong, and Experience your Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE). Please check this page in mid-December for details on how to register for your Orientation events.

Subject and Course Planning

Download the BCom Planner and visit the Course Planning page to help you plan your studies.

Do you need clarification on your course rules or are unsure about choosing subjects? Watch short videos presented by fellow students on Getting Started.

Once you have identified the subjects necessary for meeting your degree requirements and academic goals, you can enrol into subjects via your Study Plan. Enrolling in a subject means you are officially admitted to study that subject. You can find further information on enrolling here.

There's also a handy calendar to help you navigate through what you'll need to know in each week of your first semester.
