Orientation is the beginning of your journey at UCIC It is a new study environment, for most students a new country and a new way of life. Orientation is compulsory for all new students.
UCIC hosts a series of activities and programmes which ensure efficient transition to tertiary study.
There will also be information sessions concerning New Zealand culture and daily life, accommodation, banking and finance, employment, safety, health, medical and travel insurance, getting around Christchurch, and computer skills all designed to help you settle in to your new environment. Information related to your rights as a student and grievance procedures will also be provided.
Most importantly Orientation ensures that you are enrolled - you will create your timetable, purchase textbooks and obtain your UCIC Student ID Card.
