Orientation Week

The Emmanuel College Orientation program for 2020 begins on Saturday 15 February. The main objectives of this week-long program are to welcome new students to Emmanuel, to inform them about College and University life, and to prepare them for the coming academic year. Students are required to attend information sessions as indicated in the O Week program, as well as sessions organised by their chosen university/faculty. The Emmanuel College Students’ Club (ECSC) organises social and community events throughout the week, although attendance at ECSC events is optional.

If you have any questions regarding arrival to College or the Orientation program, please contact Emmanuel Reception. Before arrival at College, new students will receive information about the program as well as recommendations about what they should pack.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Emmanuel College!
