The Orientation Welcome for Semester Two 2015 runs from Tuesday 14 July - Friday 17 July.
Orientation gives you a chance to get to know the campus, make new friends, learn some academic preparation skills and have some fun!
We hold an Orientation Welcome at the beginning of Semesters One and Two to welcome you to the University of Auckland.
During the Orientation Welcome, there are a number of faculty sessions to help ease you into university life. Each faculty holds their own Orientation Day. There you will receive information on your programme of study. You will also have a chance to complete your DELNA Screening (Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment) which is compulsory for all first-year students. You will be introduced to your UniGuide and be taken on a tour of your campus.
Faculty Orientations run on the following days:
|Thursday 16 July||Friday 17 July|
|Faculty of Arts||Business School|
|National Institute of Creative
Arts and Industries
|Faculty of Science|
|Faculty of Engineering|
As a new student at the University of Auckland, it can be challenging to meet new friends, learn about campus resources and services, or find out where classes are located!
The UniGuide Programme is a free service designed to help make your first semester easier by connecting you with a student mentor who can show you the ropes.
You will meet your UniGuide at your faculty Orientation Day and they will take you on a tour of your campus.
International students are invited to attend an Orientation welcome for them on Tuesday 14 July. The day begins at 10am at the Fisher and Paykel Appliances Austitorium at the Owen G Glenn Building, 12 Grafton Road.
For more detailed information about the international students' welcome, see the International Orientation page.
