p sure the whole of o-week is voluntary, but you may find it helpful attending sessions outside of specific dental course session, simply to meet people and familiarise yourself with the campus.

Do we need to wear formal clothes at clinic? Or is casual clothing fine. Also do we need closed leather shoes? Anything else to pack?

You need a short-sleeve shirt which you will wear underneath your blue clinic coat or white lab coat (for sim clinic). Both the clinic coat & the white lab coat are bought at the uni shop. As for legwear, they have to be long pants (for both clinic + sim clinic -> jeans are not allowed in clinic but are allowed at sim clinic -> as long as it covers the knees and not like the open patchy-type jeans). Closed shoes are a must for both clinic + sim clinic (clinic requires closed leather shoes whereas sim clinic can allow sneakers and more different types of footwear) General rule of thumb is that formal clothes are a safe bet to wear to the clinic environment. Would also recommend packing swimwear (since apparently going out to beaches is a commonality across all the cohorts) as well as cocktail-like wear (since there will be nights where the AUDSS hosts events for drinking/formals/etc. which often have that dress code).

Rough guideline but hope it helps :)

Thanks! Very informative. Does the short sleeve shirt have to be formal or is a t shirt fine?

Hi has anyone received an email about their school ID cards? It's been a while since I've requested one and haven't received an email about it yet....

I just received an offer while I am preparing for the first semester in a vet school... I literally don't know what to do now. Should I go to Adelaide or stay in Melbourne doing the vet course. I really wanted to study both. Sigh...

I think this isn't really something anyone can advise or help you on. This really depends on your personal decision. Are you more interested in a career in Dentistry or a career as a Veterinarian. These two careers whilst both in health are vastly different and while you could study one of the courses and pursue the next straight after it would most likely be a waste of time.

You should also consider the implications of moving to Adelaide financially & see if it is worth the move. If you were just as interested in both careers then I would recommend trying to contact Dentists or Vets prior to the deadline if possible to see how the careers align with your expectations.
 
Ok. I chose to be a dental student. and.. I think I missed a lot of things like orientation and all invaluable information for the begining of the first semester.
