Students to start uni journey with Orientation

22 Feb 2021

USC will hold Orientation events at its Fraser Coast and Gympie campuses this week to officially welcome new students to university life.

USC Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) Professor Joanne Scott said Orientation was the perfect opportunity for students to meet their lecturers and tutors, receive help with timetables and subject selection and find out essential information about study programs.

“They can also learn about the services and support that USC offers, meet other first-year students and discover the sporting, social and cultural groups they can join,” she said.

“Orientation also includes workshops which cover study skills and important academic fundamentals to help students enhance their learning before their programs.”

Professor Scott said USC was offering both on-campus and online Orientation activities this year to help first-year students get their studies off to the best possible start, with classes beginning on Monday 1 March.

“It’s a mix of excitement and nervous anticipation for our commencing students – from our school leavers starting their tertiary education journeys to those venturing into new career directions,” she said.

There is still time to apply to study at USC in Semester 1.
