First Year at Melbourne appointments - Section contents

Beginning a university degree is an exciting time for students. But how do you find out what to do, where to go and who to meet?

Open to first year undergraduate students, your First Year at Melbourne appointment will help you navigate the university landscape and get to know the community.

It will connect you to people, places and information so you feel ready before classes even start.

Connect with other students

During the 30-minute appointment you'll meet with a later-year student and up to three other students from your course. You'll get to ask questions and talk about:

  • Meeting new people and knowing your campus
  • What you need to do before classes commence
  • How to get involved – on and off campus
  • Finding support throughout the semester.
