The GGT UDRH provides students with the opportunity to participate in orientation tours in a number of towns within the Greater Green Triangle region. These tours are free and are undertaken by local councils and health organisations.

Orientation tours help students familiarise themselves with a town's layout and the availability and location of facilities and services, such as supermarkets, ATM's and banks, post offices, sporting and recreational facilities, cinemas and the like. They also give students some insight into the local community and a chance to ask any questions they might have about the region or their town of placement.
