Student Orientation

Each semester, Holmesglen warmly welcomes its new and returning students at an exciting and informative orientation program held at each campus.

Orientation is the official commencement of the new semester and is a great way for students to feel part of our Holmesglen community. Attending orientation assists students in settling in to Melbourne and campus life, and to feel confident and prepared for success in their studies.   It's also a great opportunity for students to meet new people, make friends and learn more about their new home!

 During orientation, students receive important information and resources to support their studies and life in Melbourne.  Students also enrol at this time and receive timetables, student ID cards etc. 

 All new students should report to the International Centre on arrival to receive their orientation program.
