Orientation at SCU Melbourne is a time to welcome new students into the SCU community and welcome back our returning students. It is a chance for students to familiarise themselves with their surroundings, find out about the university services that are available, enrol in classes and understand how to maintain a Student Visa. It is an important time to prepare for study and get organised. Social activities will also provide the opportunity to meet other students. Orientation is compulsory for all new students and is offered in the week before classes commence.
