Orientation is an exciting day on campus and a great start to your student journey. It will help prepare you for life and study at AUT and make sure you’re ready when classes start. On the day you’ll meet with fellow students studying your qualification, get to terms with campus layout, learn all about the support options available to help you succeed and get connected to the free AUT Wi-Fi.

It’s a day not to be missed, but if you really can’t get to our on-campus orientation event, this information contains what you need to know to help get you started at AUT too.
