Orientation at HTMi is a time to welcome new faces into the student community. It is a chance for you to familiarise yourself with your course requirements, services – both academic and social – and take time to adjust to campus life. There are also a number of fun events on and off campus!
HTMi Australia operates compulsory orientation in the first week before classes start.
Our Student Services team will contact you prior to your commencement to inform you of all the dates and details of your orientation sessions.

HTMi Australia has services aimed at providing students with ongoing support throughout the course of their studies.

- Ongoing counselling and support for students presenting with high levels of stress and more complex personal problems
- Self-help and information leaflets

The professional counsellors offer assistance to all students. Services are free and confidential, and the counsellors are friendly and caring.
Counselling can help students to increase their enjoyment of study by reducing the effects of stress and anxiety caused by study pressures, personal or family problems. Counselling is a positive experience that can help you feel more in charge of your life. It can assist with decision-making, help to introduce new perspectives and skills, clarify goals, and increase understanding of your emotional world. Sometimes we can all benefit from a helping hand to work through life’s challenges.
HTMi Australia counsellors offer a range of support to students via email, telephone, Skype, as well as face to face counselling consultations by appointment. Same-day appointments without notice can also be provided wherever possible.
Students will engage in 15 hours of on campus face-to-face learning at HTMi Australia. A typical day on campus will involve five hours each day, including a half hour break.
