Semester 1, 2018: Monday 19 February, 2018

Welcome to new students

Orientation to USC Caboolture is an important way to learn about the University, your campus and study requirements for the year. Attendance is highly recommended.

The event kicks off with an Official Welcome and Welcome to Country followed by an exciting schedule that will equip you with the information and knowledge to get your studies off to a great start. The day will provide essential information about your program as well as opportunities to navigate the campus, find your classes and meet new people.

If you have difficulties accessing any Orientation activities or information due to a disability, learning disorder, injury or illness, please contact our Disability Services team before the event so they can assist you.

Welcome to returning students

We're excited for 2018 and to welcome USC Caboolture as part of our extended USC family.

While Orientation is usually a chance to welcome the commencing cohort of students to University, you will be new to USC so we've planned some sessions just for you. Come along to the Official Welcome then explore some of the sessions on offer. From 11:30am there is a session for returning students about the USC experience.

You'll be able to learn more about the USC learning experience, systems, key terms and introduce you to the team of support staff. So come along, get involved.
