Orientation for new students

At the start of each semester, we welcome new students to AUT through our Orientation programme. It's our way of bringing you into the AUT community and making sure you're ready to start your university journey.

The Orientation event gives new students opportunities to:

  • Connect with your fellow students
  • Meet faculty staff
  • Learn what you need to be prepared for Week One
  • Connect with specialised support services
  • Begin accessing academic support
  • Sort out your enrolments
  • Ask any questions
  • Get familiar with your campus
  • Learn how AUT supports you throughout your first semester
