It is no secret that it has been a challenging year in international education.  ISANA is focused on meeting the needs of those whose lives touch international students. The VIC/TAS 2017 state conference will break new ground by blending knowledge and practice skillfully to leave the delegates feeling invigorated and more able to face the challenges in their association with international students.

Themes to be explored:
Accommodation, visa class changes, use of social media, student support services, OSHC, MYKI, student safety, under 18 students, sexual health and equity, the important of networking and the latest research on international student social network behavior and changes.

We are seeking presenters for the conference, which is shaping up to be an exciting event of presentations, workshops, panel sessions and keynote speakers. If you are passionate about a particular area or issue in relation to working with international students, or if you have experiences to relate which will inform and challenge, we would like to hear from you.

Professional Development

The Importance of Collaboration in Providing Information to International Students

Friday, 9 June 2017, University of Tasmania

International Education Providers often find it challenging to disseminate information to students. These include information on courses, academic enrolments, accommodation, health, social events, career and employment and other support services. Often the challenge of providing information is compounded by a misunderstanding of how students access information in the digital age.

This PD includes the following activities:

Opening Session: Encouraging stronger business and industry links for our international students

Key Note speech from Associate Professor Shanton Chang: The importance of Collaboration in Providing Information to International Students

Panel Discussion: Connecting with international students: How and where do they get information? What are the challenges?

An important message from Study Melbourne

457 visa changes - what do they mean for international students?

Following the Australian Government's recent announcement about changes to its temporary skilled work visas, Study Melbourne would like to reaffirm to the State's international education community that these changes will not affect work requirements for those on a Student visa or Temporary Graduate visa in Victoria.

For more information about the changes, please read the International Education bulletin online today.

Or alternatively, the information has also been posted on the Study Melbourne website.
