Prepare for your studies with OTV

Starting university can be overwhelming at the best of times, not to mention in the middle of a global pandemic.

In 2020, the ever-changing restrictions meant we could not host our usual face-to-face Orientation events, instead we delivered Orientation Our Way, a personalised, Orientation experience.

In Term 1 2021, we are excited to continue Orientation Our Way with the introduction of some on-campus social events. This term Orientation combines opportunities to tune-in, come-in, and drop-in.

At the heart of Orientation Our Way, is Orientation TV (OTV). In this blog, we’ve asked our events team to answer some of your burning questions about OTV and explain why it’s the best way to prepare for your first term.
