Orientation

The student orientation process is conducted one week prior to the date of course commencement. The purpose of this student orientation process is to get the students acquainted with life and studies at ACCIT. It is during the orientation process that the international students get to understand the cost of living, accommodations, and transportation system in Sydney. During this session, the students get a chance to get their doubts cleared off by asking questions the staff members of this college.

Student Support, Welfare and Guidance

As an existing or prospective student of the college ACCIT, you get an opportunity to ask the faculty members or program coordinators about all the queries that swarm inside your head. Such sessions can prove helpful if they are conducted before you attend their classes. The student service officers working for our college offer referral and advice on issues that can be cultural, emotional or purely academic. The students can also get referrals to other service providers in a varied range of industries like counseling, housing, and health. The students are introduced to the Student Contact Officer right at the time of induction.
