I am a new international student and have just arrived in Australia. What do I do next?

To welcome you to Griffith University and give you the information you need to be successful, we organise a number of activities and events during Orientation Week (O-Week).

Orientation week is usually held a week before classes start. You can find out about O-Week activities and how to register for events by using the O-Week Planner. Remember to attend both your School Orientation and International Student Orientation sessions. Attendance at your International Student Orientation session is compulsory. If you have trouble attending or have missed your International Student Orientation session, please see an International Student Advisor for further advice.

If you have arrived after O week and missed your School and International Orientation sessions don’t panic, we’ve created myOrientation. myOrientation provides a personalised journey to help you with tasks such as enrolling, getting a student ID card, understanding our online systems and committing to a safe and inclusive campus. You can also access myOrientation via the orientation tile in myGriffith.

We encourage you to connect with our friendly Griffith Mates via social media (Instagram @GriffithMates and Facebook at www.facebook.com/griffithmates), so that you have access to information, activities and events supporting your transition to Griffith.
