CIC hosts an Orientation for all new students attending the College, which is held one week prior to each term course commencement.
The orientation date is indicated on your Written Agreement, however 2 weeks prior to Orientation you will be notified via e-mail when, where and what time the Orientation is to be held.
You are required to attend Orientation as you will be provided with important and vital information such as, but limited to;

It is also a great time to meet your fellow students and CIC staff members.
When you attend Orientation, the course coordinators will enrol you into your unit of studies for the term and provide a timetable for the lectures and tutorials. During enrolment, you will be provided with a study plan. This study plan outlines your unit of study for each term during your study period at CIC. You are advised to follow the suggested study plan to ensure that you complete your program within the duration of your study. Failure to follow the suggested study plan increases the risk of non-completion and it is your responsibility to ensure that all units are completed within the duration of your CoE.
If you cannot make the Orientation date, please advise the College as soon as possible to arrange an appropriate Orientation when you arrive.
