Welcome to The University of the South Pacific

 

 

 

We welcome all new students of 2018 to The University of the South Pacific! We look forward to meeting each one of you during Orientation Week 2018. 

What is Orientation Week? 

Orientation Week is especially designed for you! It is all about you and the main purpose of this entire week is to introduce you to the learning and teaching environment, help you get familiar with the campus, know the services available to you and meet the key people who can assist you in your studies. Your Orientation Week programme is designed to smooth your transition to university life and will play a critical role in your overall success at USP.

 

 

When is Orientation Week 2018?

The next Orientation Week programme will run from 29 January – 2 February 2018.

Maybe this is your first time at university or you may be resuming studies after a sabbatical. We are here to assist you in your transition to university life. Many presentations, information sessions, skills workshops, tours, activities and events are planned for you to familiarise yourself with your campus and to meet the staff and students. 

This week is also about having lots of fun! To help you overcome the nervousness of being in a new environment, various activities have been organised around campus. This will give you an opportunity to meet your fellow students, make new friends and have lots of fun in the process.

So, come and be part of this important journey, and start your University life with the end in mind – we will guide you all the way. And don’t forget to collect your Orientation Kit from your respective Faculty Orientation and welcome session. It contains very important resources that will help you know and adjust in the University environment better.  The Orientation Kit will also include the 2018 USP Orientation Guide, Student Orientation passport, and many other resources that will only be given during the Student Orientation programme.

You are encouraged to attend your faculty welcome session and as many workshops possible. 

 

All the best and we welcome you to USP once again.
