Programs for higher education students

We're here to help you get started with your Holmesglen studies.

At Holmesglen, we're aware that starting a higher education course is exciting, but it may also be a time of enormous challenge and change, be it social, academic or personal.

Headstart Program

The orientation program is designed for students entering the first year of their degree. It includes a series of academic and fun social activities to help students settle into their study life and celebrate the beginning of their academic journey.

Transition to Higher Education Program

The Transition to Higher Education program has been designed specifically for pathway students transitioning from Vocational Education and Training (VET) to higher education.

What’s involved?

These programs aim to introduce new students to the skills necessary to succeed in their learning. Through a series of events and activities, students can:

  • Understand key course information
  • Learn key study and research skills
  • Get set up with IT and systems
  • Take campus tours
  • Participate in social activities
  • Meet the academic and administrative staff
  • Understand support and wellbeing services
  • Obtain help with living independently
  • Ask key questions

The dates for these programs are published on the academic calendar, which is updated each semester.
