THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTS

Welcome to CHC. We are thrilled that you are going to be studying with us. It is an exciting time to further your skills and acquire new knowledge. This transition to higher education can be daunting, however, this is why it is important that you attend Orientation sessions to learn about how things work at CHC, to meet your lecturers and fellow students. Orientation is also a chance for us to get to know you.

At Orientation you can expect to:

  • meet new people and make new friends.
  • find out about your classes.
  • meet your lecturers
  • settle into campus and study life.
  • discover a range of support services available to you.
