Welcome from the HETC team

Congratulations on gaining admission to the Harvest Education Technical College, and a warm welcome to you as a new member of our community. The program of activities that makes up HETC orientation has been designed to familiarise you with the campus, allow you to meet staff and other students, and gain information about services for students. There will be organised tours of the campus and plenty of time for socialising. You are encouraged to take the opportunity to attend as many orientation activities as you can. By taking advantage of everything orientation offers, you will give yourself a head start to your years at the HETC – years that will be productive, creative, and challenging.

Orientation at the HETC

In orientation you will meet with the HETC Student Services team and be introduced to campus resources. You will also find out about the various support services available to you as a student.

We encourage all new students to attend both these days as well as your discipline’s academic orientation day which will be held during the first week of classes.
