When should I arrive?
We recommend you arrive in Sydney one (1) week before the start of your Introductory Academic Program (IAP). This will give you time to arrange some practical matters e.g. opening a bank account, activating your OSHC, finding long-term accommodation, familiarise yourself with public transport and your surroundings, introduce yourself to your supervisor if you are a research student etc.
If you choose to arrive earlier, you may; but please be aware that entitlement to the Contribution to Living Expenses (stipend) commences only fourteen (14) days prior to the start of IAP.
