Get started with the O-SSENTIALS
The O-SSENTIALS session on Orientation Day is your first connection point to your student community (including other First Year students). Led by students from partnered UNSW Business Clubs and Societies, you’ll discover what you need to know to kickstart your first term, ace your studies and build a community of friends to call your own.
You’ll get an O-SSENTIALS Guide – an eBook of go-to, must-have info that’s essential to kickstart your UNSW Business School student life. This is housed on Microsoft Teams, where we have specific cohort channels for new students.
My BCommunity - Undergraduate, Bachelor-Level Business Community Channel
Join your First Year peers on the BCommunity Microsoft Teams channel, where you can connect with your cohort and wider members of your learning community. Form study groups, stay across events in Clubs and Societies and chat in groups or 1-1 with your classmates.
Once you have downloaded Teams and signed in with your Student ID, search for “My BCommunity” and “Study Groups” to find groups to participate in.
My MCommunity – Postgraduate, Masters-Level Business Community Channel
Join your First Year peers on the MCommunity Microsoft Teams channel, where you can connect with your cohort and wider members of your learning community. Form study groups, stay across events in Clubs and Societies and chat in groups or 1-1 with your classmates. This is a channel you can turn to at any time of term as you live your UNSW Business School life.

UNSW Business School Clubs & Societies
We proudly collaborate with 25+ affiliated UNSW Business School student clubs and societies. These societies are also affiliated with Arc UNSW and represent schools/majors of study and business career interest areas.
Engaging with UNSW Business School clubs and societies means having access to professional development experiences, peer mentoring programs and fun social events!
The Career Accelerator team also works closely with our clubs and societies from O-Week and throughout the term with industry events and experiences. They also represent the student voice and raise timely student topics to the faculty at the UNSW Business School Community Engagement Committee.
Keeping Connected with Your Community
Community Wednesdays (Every Term, Weeks 1 -3)
Community Wednesdays are a series of community events during the opening weeks of each term. They include a range of ‘how to’ sessions hosted by the UNSW Business School, as well as student-lead events delivered by our affiliated clubs and societies.
All in all, Community Wednesday creates a sense of place and community for our students, whether you’re studying online, on campus, or overseas! Community Wednesday is open to all students in the UNSW Business School, both undergraduate and postgraduate in first year, final year or any year in between.
Keep across all the action in the UNSW Business School with the BusFeed, My BCommunity and My MCommunity student newsletters.
As a new starter, you’ll get timely updates, aimed at assisting you to settle into your learning community through BusFeed. You’ll also get My BCommunity (undergraduate) or My MCommunity (postgraduate) and Career Accelerator newsletters fortnightly.
There’s no need to miss out on anything going on at the UNSW Business School. Keep an eye on your inbox and come along to events!
