Welcome to Melbourne: International Student Webinars

All commencing international students and their families are invited to attend this online event, designed to support your transition to life in Melbourne.


The International Student Webinars are your first introduction to our thriving community, custom made just for international students. Attending these events is the best way to get to know your new community and get ready to start classes. From course planning to learning about Melbourne’s coffee culture, you have the flexibility to register for the sessions that suit you best.  

Just because much of life has temporarily moved online, it doesn’t mean that you won’t get a unique Melbourne experience. Whether you start online and join us on campus later, we’re working hard to make sure you’ll be supported and feel part of an engaged and connected community no matter where you are in the world.

“When I attended these events I learned a lot about balancing University life, making friends and professional development. Hearing personal stories about challenges and social life from people who’ve lived through it was comforting and I couldn’t wait to make my own. I felt more ambitious afterward.”
