It's Go Time

It’s Go Time is a multidimensional approach to orientation, categorised by eight themes, that allows new and returning students to be set up for success in their studies and student life by giving them access to a range of activities and information sessions throughout the first few weeks of session and beyond.

It’s Go Time is for all students, new and returning.

We have carefully curated a range of helpful information sessions and activities that will benefit all students no matter what stage of the student journey they are at. If the event is only available to new students this will be clearly identified in the event description.

This year UOW has adopted a multi-week approach to orientation, ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their studies. We have put together a multidimensional approach, categorised by eight themes, to aid new and returning students by giving them access to a range of activities and information sessions throughout the first few weeks of session. The categories that these activities and sessions embody will be sure to guarantee students success in all aspects of student life.
