Important Info for New Students
Information contained in this section of the website will assist you with preparing to come to Australia, Canberra, and more importantly the University. In the first instance, I strongly advise you to read the Predeparture Guide and go through the checklist here. Most importantly:
1. Organize your accommodation before you arrive.
3. Ensure you arrive in Canberra at least a few days prior to Registration and Orientation Week. It is a visa requirement that you attend the international student welcome and information session.If at any point you have any questions and have not found the answers on our website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can find us on Facebook under Uni ISA.
