Orientation is designed to welcome new students to CIT and to make sure you receive the support and advice you need to enjoy your studies and life in Canberra.

Orientation is a great chance to meet other students, meet CIT staff and teachers, familiarise yourself with the campus and receive important information about your enrolment.

New international students must attend the following events:

These compulsory* orientation events are held each semester for international students who are about to start their mainstream course.
