Welcome to Murdoch University! The best way to prepare for uni life and your first year of study is to join us at orientation (also called O-Week).
O-Week runs from 17 – 21 February 2020 for the majority of courses. Semester 1 teaching starts 24 February 2020.
O-Week is helpful and informative but it’s also fun and a great way to make new friends. If you miss it, you may find yourself trying to catch-up at the beginning of semester. So join us to hear more about your course, get your student ID card, explore the campus and discover the many services and facilities available to you.
There’s a variety of events, workshops and info sessions to help you settle in. The official welcome ceremony kicks off the festivities, followed by your course advice session later in the week. Once you have completed the formalities, it’s time to enjoy a range of activities, entertainment and more!
If you’re joining us from overseas, O-Week is compulsory. We have a range of activities designed especially for international students to help you settle in, learn about your student visa and what it’s like to live and work in Perth. After attending your O-Week session, you can then collect your student card.
Orientation runs from 17 – 21 February, 2020 for the majority of courses but if you’re enrolled in one of the below courses, please note a different orientation date:
|Graduate Diploma in Migration Law||Saturday 11 January|
|Bachelor of Nursing (Mandurah)||Wednesday 29 January|
|Bachelor of Nursing (Perth)||Thursday 30 January|
|Master of Teaching (Primary and Secondary)||Thursday 30 January|
