Find Your Feet @ Orientation Week

Orientation Week is here to help you find your feet as you start your studies at ACPE. It marks the start of your student experience as a member of the ACPE family. It is a time filled with events and activities designed to share critical information and practical arrangements with you to set you up for success. It also allows you to meet fellow first-year students and the rest of the ACPE family – lecturers, support staff and current students. Your attendance and participation in O-Week is vital for your success. It is a great opportunity to create unforgettable memories. This is what O-Week is all about.

Why Should I Attend?

We share really important information with you about how to access information, what is expected of you and how to ensure success from the first day of classes. All new students are required to complete orientation (O-Week) before week one commences. To get the most out of your orientation we recommended that you attend one day in person, on campus and access our online orientation information prior to commencing week one.

You should make arrangements to ensure that you are able to attend particularly if you are expecting it to conflict with other work or family commitments.
