Welcome to The University of the South Pacific

Orientation Week 2019

We look forward to meeting each one of you during Orientation Week 2019.

When is Orientation Week 2019?

The next Orientation Week programme will run from 28 January – 1 February 2019.

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 2019 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.
