Specific instructions on how to meet up with the group and a Travel Guide will be emailed to you 3-4 weeks prior to departure. Please be sure to bring your Travel Guide with you as you travel to Australia, and contact the Arcadia staff listed on the Travel Guide if you run into any difficulties that may prevent you from meeting up with the group at the scheduled time.
You will receive an email from your program manager with a recommended flight arrival time. If you book a flight scheduled to land by the recommended time, members of Arcadia’s Australian staff will greet you at the airport and take you to orientation. Arrangements have been made for your luggage to be stored during the Arcadia Orientation, so you will only need to bring a small bag packed for these three days.
If your flight lands a day or more before the program start date, please note Arcadia’s service do not begin until the start date and you will need to source your own accommodations. On the start date, you will be expected to meet the group for orientation at the time and place designated in your travel guide.
If your flight is delayed and you arrive after the group, you will need to make your own arrangements to meet them at the Orientation venue and will be responsible for any costs.
