Orientation 2024 is coming! We cannot wait to meet all our new students in the week of 12 - 16 February 2024.

The pre-orientation module will open on 25 January 2024 and will be available to all unconditionally accepted students via UP's online learning platform called clickUP. The aim of this module is to provide all learners who might become UP students with a glimpse into what they could expect from academic life at UP.

The 2024 Academic Orientation Week will be presented in a hybrid fashion; most of the activities will be hosted face-to-face and on campus. Day two (2) will be presented via the online module UPO on clickUP (UP's online learning environment). Detailed information will be shared in the programmes.

The online part of the Academic Orientation programme will still be available in your UPO module after the Academic Orientation Week.
