What to expect on this important day


Your first day at The French

#FRENCHIES Because there’s one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood

F​​eeling anxious about making friends on your first day? You’re not alone! It’s actually one of the most common fears all soon-to-be #Frenchies have before they embark on their studies. ⁠Experiencing nerves before your first day is totally normal. We all worry about what others will think about us, will we fit in, will people be nice, will we be accepted… But at The French, you don’t have to be worried because you already have some friends – they’re the ones in the pink scarfs!⁠

Our wonderful Student Ambassadors are friendly, kind and can’t wait to meet you and show you the ropes. They are always on campus, willing to listen, ready to help if you are ever feeling lost or overwhelmed.⁠

To get you started on the right foot, we have designed a specialised Orientation schedule which is dedicated to ensuring you are fully prepared and dressed for success, both personally and professionally. Upon arrival to campus, you’ll be introduced into your class (named after amazing pioneering women in history) where we have a number of activities planned to get you comfortable and you’ll find out everything you need to know before your first official class! We’re here to help and our friendly staff and educators are here to answer all your questions, big or small.
