An orientation is held at the beginning of the year. The purpose of the orientation is to integrate new international students into the university community. The students are welcomed by the Director: IEP and are introduced to the International Education and Partnerships (IEP) team. In the first part of the orientation the students attend an information session where presentations are made by representatives from various departments including the library, student health, student counselling, sports department, campus safety: protection services, medical aid representatives and the international students’ organization (ISO). The students are then taken on a tour of our campuses as well as a tour of Durban.
