Orientation

Each TAFE NSW location conducts an orientation session before each course begins.

The orientation session provides new students with information about:

  • Living in Australia
  • Working in Australia
  • The range of services available to international students
  • Whom to contact if you need help during your stay

You are also introduced to your International Students Coordinator and you meet other international students who are starting at TAFE NSW.
