Welcome to Deakin

Let's get started. Your Orientation to Deakin is the first step in making a successful start to your studies. As all commencing students will be starting study online we have designed an online orientation program to help you make a great start to your study.

Trimester 2 2021 dates:

  • Pre-OWeek: 28 June - 2 July 2021

  • OWeek: 5 - 9 July 2021

  • Week 1: 12 - 16 July 2021

Your Orientation Itinerary is an individual, tailored schedule of sessions that are offered to you online. Each session will have additional pre-session resources and information added within 48 hours prior to the session time. This will help you get ready for the session.

Your Itinerary includes all academic and study support sessions relevant to you, as well as social activities, workshops, tours and other opportunities to get to know Deakin.

Most of our orientation activities take place during OWeek, but some will continue into your first few weeks.
