The Importance of Orientation
Orientation is a time to find out what you need to know in order to study effectively at ECC. ECC takes it's duty of care obligations seriously and orientation is the first step in ensuring that you are advised of academic support systems, student wellbeing programs and safety information for life in Australia. As such, attendance at orientation is compulsory. In addition, missing the scheduled orientation dates will delay administrative processes (eg. ID card and transport concessions) and limit enrolment choices (fewer unfilled classes, limited time options and the possibility that you may not be able to take on a full-time load).
Every effort should be made to arrive in Australia in time for the scheduled orientation. Students who cannot meet this obligation are required to seek approval and provide written evidence of extenuating circumstances.
