Orientation

Attending MIT’s on-campus compulsory orientation program is essential to the wellbeing and academic success of all new students. Orientation programs are held the week prior to the start of each trimester and are designed to help students adjust to living and studying in Australia.

MIT’s orientation program runs over a number of days and provides you with vital information in the areas listed below:

  • program and subjects;
  • health and safety, both on and off-campus;
  • accommodation and renting;

Important dates and census

MIT wants our students to know which dates during trimester will be most important to their studies. Below are the relevant fee, enrolment and census dates for each trimester.

What are important dates?

Each year, MIT publishes the “Academic Calendar” for the year ahead, detailing days during each trimester which will be very important to their studies. These dates are primarily about:

  • Trimester commencement dates, including Orientation, and Week 1 of classes;
  • The last day to withdraw or take a leave of studies without academic or financial penalty;
  • Census dates each trimester (What are Census dates? See below) and
  • Enrolment periods for students.
What are Census dates?

Census dates are very important dates in the Academic Calendar (one per trimester) that stipulate the final date to make any changes to a students’ course without incurring a financial penalty, and without reference on a students’ records.

Domestic

The Census date is the last date for a Domestic Student to withdraw from units, defer trimester, or withdraw from their course without incurring a FEE-HELP payment liability. This gives the student time to see if they like the course before deciding to withdraw or leave.

International

The Census date is the last date for International students to withdraw from their current trimester. For more information, please refer to the ‘Important dates’ tab above and the refund policy.

Re-enrolment dates

A full list of Re-enrolment dates can be found here. (Refer to important dates)
