Getting into student life at an Australian university directly after high-school could be overwhelming to some and underwhelming to many. In order to avoid any unmet expectations, it is strongly recommended to attend your o-week at your university in Australia.
Orientation Week or O-Week sets the perfect example for a social and an academic blend of activities which are well-designed to introduce students to university life. It is a bit challenging since Australian universities have a high percentage of international students coming from different backgrounds, but determined to fit in.
Some sessions are obligatory and some are actually not, depending on their content. For example, if a session is held for Dos & Don’ts on-campus, it will be mandatory for students to attend these kinds of sessions. Most universities have Compulsory international students sessions. You, as a student, should get to know all the rules and norms of the university you are about to spend the next 4 years in.
