Orientation 2020

New students – welcome to Monash!

Our program

Orientation is all about getting off to a great start.

Understanding your course and the systems and services that support you means you’ll be on your way to a great year and academic success.

Prepare for success

  • Monash Essentials

    Monash Essentials – online modules to help you settle into study at Monash.

    These are a great introduction to get across all that Monash University offers. Accessed through Moodle, your learning management system, you'll get to know the academic and support resources that can help you thrive and succeed in your academic study.

  • Academic integrity

    For most students, producing authentic work is second nature. However, plagiarism can happen unknowingly – that’s why you need to know how to study and research ethically.

Test your study skills

Jump right in to develop good study skills.

Take a quiz to test your knowledge and find the resources you need to succeed.

Everything tech

It's time to set yourself up with the software you need and get familiar with how to connect once you’re on campus.
