What is Welcome Week?

During Welcome Week you can find out all the important things to know and do before you start.

You will learn exactly what is expected from you (and what you can expect from your program) in sessions including:

  • Program-related presentations by your program managers, subject coordinators and teachers.
  • Introductions to the aims and objectives of all your subjects, so you know what is required and what is coming up. If you are doing any subjects that require a diagnostic test, you will do it during Welcome Week.
  • Social meetings to form learning groups within your subjects and get to know your classmates and teachers through team-building exercises and practical activities.
  • Study Success sessions, run by UTS College academic staff, to help you best prepare for your studies and include information on how to:
    • a) develop your learning skills whilst studying at UTS College, including our blended approach to teaching and learning.
    • b) prepare for your classes, what types of assessments you will be expected to complete and what type of support is available to you.

During Welcome Week you can also find out about the support services at UTS College. These include the learning support program, peer support, Study Success Advisers, special needs, special consideration, UTS counselling and health services.


Here is an overview of when each Welcome Week session takes place. You should receive an email with information on your Welcome Week. It will tell you when and where you need to arrive. Welcome Week information may change, so please keep checking your UTS email account and this webpage for the most up-to-date information.

What to do if you miss Welcome Week

Academic students can arrive up until the end of the first week of classes. This is only allowed if visas are delayed or for some other serious reason. If you are an English language student, you will need to arrive before your classes commence or enrol for the next English program term.

If your arrival is delayed, contact the Student Centre as soon as you arrive to enrol and get set for classes. If you don’t go to the Student Centre to complete your arrangements, your enrolment could be cancelled. If you are an international student this will impact your visa.
