NEW students enrolling at the University of the South Pacific this year began their orientation on Monday morning.

The week-long program, which ends on Saturday, is aimed at welcoming newcomers, introducing them to members of the different faculties and subject areas and the general lay-out of the university's various schools.

"It is designed to give students a kickstart to their studies as well as a taste of the rich campus experiences they will come across during their time at USP," a statement from the university said.

Orientation sessions are for all the different faculties —Faculty of Science, Technology and Environment; Faculty of Business and Economics; and Faculty of Arts, Law and Education.

Group manager for Campus Life Glenn Pope said thousands of students had been attending the sessions.

"The transition from high school or work to university life is not easy. USP recognises the challenges that new students are likely to encounter and is committed to helping new students explore opportunities," Mr Pope said.
