We're running two repeat sessions.

Welcome to Melbourne

The International Student Welcome and Briefing is your chance to meet the International Student Advisory and Support team – Swinburne’s dedicated 24-hour expert team.

This session provides you with the important things you need to know about being an international student before you arrive at your first class during orientation.

Each session will cover:

  • your health and welfare
  • building a social life and social network
  • Swinburne and community support services available to you
  • how the Victorian community works, including health, emergency services and community groups 
  • how to get help with accommodation
  • visa expectations and making it work for you
  • your rights and responsibilities
  • how to travel around Melbourne.

At our expo, you’ll get to meet members of key Swinburne and community support services – they are here to help make life easier outside of your study. Student cultural clubs are also excited to meet you there!
