Orientation and placement testing takes place on the day you start classes. At orientation you will be met by International Centre staff who will:
- provide information about your college and study requirements including timetable, facilities, safety and student support;
- provide a form to apply for a SmartRider public transport card and information to help you settle into life in Perth; and
- assess you for placement in an appropriate English language class.
