Orientation Guidance for New Students

Welcome to UCA! As a student of the college you will embark on a process of learning that is experiential, interactive and dynamic. The training you receive with UCA is intended to provide you with skills and knowledge that will enable you to reach your particular learning goals.

To achieve the most out of your course we suggest you use the UCA website as a source of useful information to guide you through your study program.


Orientation is normally held in the week before term starts on Sydney campus. As a new student, tertiary and vocational education can be daunting. Attending an Orientation session will benefit you and help you settle in.

What to expect on the day:

  • You will have the opportunity to meet academic support staff and get to know other new students.
  • You will be informed on what to expect and what you need to know about your learning journey at UCA.
  • There will be a tour of the campus and the library to familiarise yourself with the College.
