Orientation

Orientation programs are held before each trimester, and are designed to help students adjust to studying & social life at MIT.

The program provides you with an overview of resources, services and support available to you during your time at MIT. The orientation sessions also provides you with vital information about courses, additional student services, enrolment information and a chance to meet all staff and look at campus facilities.

A free afternoon of activities is always on offer on Day 1 of the program and is a great way to meet your classmates and make some lifelong friends.

Students must ensure that MIT have your correct personal and contact details at all times. Students are required to update their details if there are any variations.
