International Students Ask

Thank you to everyone involved with International Students Ask!

Over the past four months, Study Australia and its partners have been answering your most pressing questions about studying in Australia as an international student, with advice and support from the experts.

We covered everything from visas, mental health, financial hardship, travel and your studies, to employment, relationships and finding connections.

While we are no longer taking questions through International Students Ask, you can find a range of answered FAQs on the International Student Support page. You can also watch a range of International students from across Australia ask their questions to the experts on our YouTube Page.

If you have any urgent questions you want answered, the Australian Government has created a dedicated email and hotline for international students at international.students@dese.gov.au and 1300 981 621 (9am to 5pm AEST, weekdays).

If you are in danger dial 000. If you require mental health support please head to Lifeline who can provide 24 hour assistance.

Remember that that you are not alone. We are #InThisTogether

Here are a few key questions we received and some resources you might find helpful:
