Orientation program  

Orientation is an informative, friendly and fun way to prepare for your study at Chisholm.

You must attend our orientation for new students. We make it compulsory because we want to be sure that you are comfortable and confident from your first day in class.

At orientation you’ll receive important information about your campus, Chisholm and Melbourne, and enjoy meeting new friends and your teachers. When you accept your offer, we’ll send you a letter that gives you the date, time and location of orientation. We look forward to meeting you there.
