Clayton Campus orientation events

Monash IT, Clayton, will host an Orientation Welcome for commencing students during "O Week” in 2017. Find out more below – and we’ll see you there!

Orientation – what’s it all about?

Orientation is the time when you familiarise yourself with the campus, the libraries, learning resources and of course, to get to know your fellow students. It is designed to help you settle into university and provide you with information to prepare you for the start of classes. So get involved, and  make  the  most  of  it.

  • Meet your course directors.
  • Familiarise yourself with Moodle, Allocate +, Turn-it-in.
  • Campus Tour - familiarise yourself with lecture theatres, tutorial rooms, study spaces.
  • The IT resources and software that are available for you and how do you get them?
  • Where do you go to improve your study skills?
  • Meet other new students - your new friends and study partners.
  • Ask questions, find out what you need to know.

Online resource – academic orientation

We want to make your transition into university as smooth as possible. To help you get your university brain engaged, we are offering you an opportunity to participate with an online resource that will help further develop your critical thinking skills before you meet us in orientation week.

Monash provides an online academic orientation program. This is a series of modules and activities of value to you at university level. You are invited to join the conversation and start your university intellect now. This online academic orientation does not take the place of your compulsory orientation  week  program  with  Monash  IT, so you should make sure you have those dates in your diary.

Information that is provided at orientation will be made available to this website after O’Week.

FIT Safety Manual for Students is available from the student resource page.
