Your International Student Welcome is your introduction to life in Australia and studying at Deakin. It includes information sessions, activities and orientation events that will kick-start your university adventure and prepare you for your degree.
You’ll meet all of the other international students commencing at Deakin on your campus, so it’s a fantastic way to make new friends from all over the world.
The information sessions and tours will cover:
- what you need to know to live and study in Australia
- support services available to you at Deakin (most of them are free)
- finding your way around your campus
- finding a peer mentor to help you make a great start
- how you can get involved in the local community
- important information about looking after yourself and others.
You’ll also hear from your faculty and meet some of your lecturers. There will be free food, giveaways and fun presentations like cooking demonstrations and real-life Australian animals!
It’s one of the most important events in your first trimester at Deakin, so register now through your Orientation Itinerary online or via our Deakin Genie app. Download Genie from the App Store or Google Play today!
