Student support is available

The Swinburne community is saddened by recent events in the Middle East. If you have been impacted by these events free support is available through Swinburne’s Health and Wellbeing Service, Multi Faith Centre, and the International Student Advisory & Support services dedicated to our international students. We want to assure you prejudice, racism and antisemitism will not be tolerated at Swinburne.
