Orientation at CSU

Our Orientation activities are designed to help you know what’s expected in your course, as well as settle into life as a CSU student. You’re encouraged to come to as many sessions as you can.

Orientation activities are broken up into three main categories:

  • Academic sessions: Meet your Course Director or other academic staff, make sure you’re up-to-speed with all your course requirements, and check you’ve got everything you need for your first classes
  • Services and support sessions: Find out about the support team available at CSU to help you through your studies. There are dedicated teams to help you boost your study skills, manage your finances, look after your health and more
  • Uni life sessions: Get involved in our social program to make some of your first uni friends! Brush up your trivia skills and be prepared to whip up some homemade costumes and have some fun.

If you’re studying online, you’ll have access to a comprehensive schedule of online sessions. You can log in to join live, or many sessions are recorded so you can watch them in your own time. If you live near a CSU campus, you’re welcome to come along to some sessions in person or join in the social activities.

If you’re an on-campus student, you’ll attend most of your Orientation sessions face-to-face, but you can also join the online sessions.

Once you’ve accepted your offer to study with CSU, we’ll email you with detailed information about Orientation and guide you through the steps to make your first session a great one. If you have any questions along the way, the friendly team at Student Central is here to help.
