Parent and Family Orientation

The start of university is an exciting time not only for new students, but also for their parents and family. Whether it’s the first or fifth family member to take this step, each time is different. Families have many hopes concerns, and questions about their students’ journey at university.

There is no Parent and Family Orientation available for the Winter 2017. However dates will be announced during the Summer 2017 for fall intake.
