Hit the ground running with our Sydney-based Orientation program. Held over five days, Orientation combines academic sessions with cultural experiences, and each activity is designed to help students ease into their semester in Australia. In past program surveys, participants have continuously commented that the orientation program was vital in helping them feel relaxed, prepared, and excited for their upcoming semester abroad (Orientation video). On the final day of Orientation, students are transported to the airport to fly to Melbourne, where they are met by TEAN's Perth-based staff and oriented to their housing and local area. See below for some of the Orientation highlights.
