Welcome to orientation! This is an exciting time where you can get acquainted with the Academy and we can help you settle in.
As a new student embarking on a new journey, your first stop is Student Services.
For vocational courses, orientation usually takes place one week prior the commencement of classes as per the selected intake date. The orientation normally takes 1-2 hours, where we help you to:
- Enrol in classes. You can tailor your own timetable according to your availability. AAC offers morning, afternoon, and evening classes.
- Get your student card. This card will be your identification as a student in Australia.
- Get your Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI is a unique code that you must have in order to study in Australia. If you don’t already have one, we can help you apply.
- Fill in forms. The best part of orientation! There’s lots of forms to fill up, but don’t be daunted, one of our super-friendly Student Services Officers can help you out if you get stuck.
- Log in to AusAcademy Online. We show you how to access your student learning through our website.
- Take a tour. Our campus has great student facilities, study areas, and amenities. We will show you around so you’re sure where everything is when you need it.
We also host a little seminar to help explain student visa obligations, attendance, academic progress, and other related issues.
For English courses, orientation takes place the Friday prior to the commencement of classes as per the selected intake date. This takes place at AAC Language Centre, 2/11-13 O'Keefes Lane, Kogarah NSW 2217.
The orientation takes normally one hour, and includes:
- Lots of useful information about your English program to get you on the right track.
