Don't miss out on the CELUSA/SAIBT Orientation! We offer a one day comprehensive guide to help you effectively and efficiently transition into your SAIBT studies.

For many students this is not only a new study environment, but a new country and way of life. Our staff are committed to helping ensure your success at CELUSA/SAIBT and in Australia.

Did You Know?

  • Many current CELUSA/SAIBT students volunteer to help welcome new students at each orientation! They help assist students with their transition to Adelaide.
  • Orientation is a fun day of activities. You get the opportunity to make new friends before beginning your academic studies and CELUSA.

If for any reason (including late issue of a visa) you are unable to arrive in Adelaide before the end of the first week of semester, you must immediately request that your offer of a place be deferred to the following semester.
