Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day

Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day is an important academic orientation where you'll learn about opportunities within the Bachelor of Biomedicine.

Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day Details

The Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day aims to give you the information and tools required to accept your offer, complete your enrolment and understand what academic decisions you are required to make along your journey. It will also be an opportunity to connect with the Biomedicine Student Society. Attendance is strongly recommended.

In 2018 the Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day will be held on Monday 29th January.

The day consists of 3 activities that are designed to help you plan your degree, engage with your cohort and to start to familiarise yourself with the Parkville Campus.

Welcome and Your Options Explained
11am - 12.30pm, Sunderland Theatre Medical Building
Introduction to the Bachelor of Biomedicine and some ways to start thinking and planning your course.

Lunch with Biomedicine Student Society
12.30pm - 2pm, Medical Courtyard, Outside the West Wing of the Medical Building
Meet your fellow Biomedicine Students and connect with one of the largest course-based student societies on campus.

Optional Computer Lab Session
2pm - 5pm, W313 Computer Lab, Medical Building
Still having problems with completing the online enrolment steps? Want to discuss with a student who has been where you are now? The computer lab is open for the afternoon, with current Biomedicine students around to assist you to navigate the enrolment system and answer question about their Biomedicine experiences.

What to Bring

Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day will include an information session and social activities, so you'll need to be prepared for both. We suggest that you bring:

  • a pen and note paper to take notes in the information session
  • A drink bottle and some sunscreen as lunch will be outside
  • a positive attitude: we know that meeting new people in a new place can be daunting, but come with an open mind, ready to get to know the University and your Bachelor of Biomedicine cohort.

Getting to Campus

We encourage you to use public transport, walk or ride as first options.

If you do need to drive to the Parkville campus there are carparks for staff, students and visitors nearby.

Other Orientation Activities

As well as attending the Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day, we encourage you to also attend activities during the University's Orientation: Make the most of Melbourne, for all  University of Melbourne students, with activities and information sessions running from Monday 12 – Friday 23 February 2018.

Information for Parents and Supporters

The Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day sessions are designed for new students to get their first university experience, to meet new people and to understand how life at uni differs from secondary school. For these reasons, we encourage parents and supporters to allow the new students to settle in as group together and therefore not attend the days events.

Parents and supporters are welcome to drop off and pick up their new student for the day and either stay on campus, wander through vibrant Lygon Street for a coffee, lunch or shopping, or catch any tram from Tram Stop 1 down to the CBD.

Unable to attend Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day?

Whilst we encourage all commencing students to attend the Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day we understand that it isn’t always possible. As such we will have resources available online. Links will become available from this page around the 13th February. Please remember, this does not replace the experience of attending Biomedicine Enrolment Advice Day. However, they will provide the necessary guidance to enrol and ensure you get a good start to your degree.

The University will also be offering orientation activities as a part of the broader Orientation: Make the most of Melbourne program. There will be many sessions to help you as you get started and we suggest you make the most of them!
