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 Melbourne Orientation, for all  University of Melbourne students, with activities and information sessions running from Monday 24 February to Friday 28 February 2020.

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 a group and therefore not attend the day.

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. 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 Melbourne Orientation program. There will be many sessions to help you as you get started and we suggest you make the most of them!
