Upcoming OzTREKK Orientation events at your Australian university

Once again, we are proud to announce that OzTREKK will be hosting upcoming OzTREKK Orientations in Australia, and we can’t hardly wait! (Yes, we know that’s grammatically incorrect, but hey, we’re excited!)

What are the OzTREKK Orientations, you may ask? Well, the Orientations are in place to make sure that you are well prepared, organized and ready to tackle your studies and get the most of your time in Australia and overseas. OzTREKK enjoys hosting official “Welcome to Oz” events to get our newest students settled into their surroundings—and armed with a checklist to make sure the transition goes smoothly.

As part of the OzTREKK Orientations, we host a welcome breakfast, lunch or dinner—a great way to meet other new Canadian students, so that you can establish a network and friends right away and help alleviate any homesickness. It’s also a great way to meet upper-year Canadians who can show you the ropes and share their experiences with you so that you know what to expect.

The welcome events are fantastic, as by the end of the event, you have shared contact details with your new mates and have instant friends! You start to go through your journey with someone else, which is so much fun!

OzTREKK also knows firsthand what it takes to move to the other side of the planet and get yourself prepared for your studies, so Beth and Matt set up the ever-popular OzTREKK Shuttle—a taxi services without the fee! Matt will pick you up in their van and take you to wherever you need to go.

Need groceries? No dramas! Need to find accommodation? No dramas! Need to open a bank account? No dramas! Just need to get the lay of the land? No worries, mate! The OzTREKK Shuttle is there to pick you up and take you wherever you need to go.

We know how important it is for you to be well established, organized and set up before you commence your studies. Your success depends on how ready you are for your studies and the only way to be ready is to have everything organized!

If you’ve forgotten your name and password, please contact your Admissions Officer and he or she will be happy to send it to you!
