Who is Insider Foundry?
Insider Foundry is the publisher of the free, annual Insider Guides – International Student Guides. Written by local students, they help to bridge the gap between what local students know about a city and what international students should know. Each year, over 150,000 guides are printed and given away to international students for free. Over 70% of new international students receive a copy in Australia each year.
Insider Guides are widely recognised as a best practice resource for international students, distributed to over 300 educational institutions in Australia. They have also been praised by the Australian Human Rights Commission as a benchmark example to promote and protect the human rights of international students in Australia.
We publish guides for six Australian cities (Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra), as well as produce several offshore guides for students who are considering coming to Australia.
