Caulfield Campus orientation events

Monash IT Caulfield 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 for you to 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 director.
  • 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 to access them.
  • Where to go to improve your study skills.
  • Meet other new students – your new friends and study partner.
  • Ask questions, find out what you need to know before you start.

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.

You can enrol at the Academic Orientation Moodle site.

The information provided at orientation is available after orientation both here and in hard copy at the Faculty (H building, level 6).

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