Insider Guides’ weekly student webinars aim to answer the most pressing questions surrounding the international students in Australia.
Insider Guides, along with a host of experts and industry professionals, bring together a diverse audience from across Australia in weekly and interactive webinars, offering opportunities for live Q&A sessions, resource sharing and support to international students.
Webinar #10: Why you should study (and work!) in a regional area
What are the visa, education, lifestyle and employment benefits in regional areas? Is it worth the effort? How would you make it happen? Joined by Andrew Houey, International Marketing Director for StudyAdelaide, Edgar Ho, International Student Advisor at TasTAFE, and current international student, Rui Ma, we discussed what you need to know about living in Australia’s regional areas.
Webinar #9: Jobs vs. Careers
Joined by Will James, National Careers Manager, Kaplan Business School, and Yousef Shadid, GradShip Founder, we explored how international students can prepare themselves for meaningful and fulfilling futures in the workplace.
Joined by education sector experts, Rebecca Hall, former Senior Industry Expert International Education with Austrade, and Luke Sheehy, Executive Director of the Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN), and co-host Kasun Kalhara, former National Welfare Officer with the Council of International Students Australia (CISA), this webinar discussed the future of international students pursuing their studies in Australia.
Insider Guides were joined by Linh, an international student in Australia sharing her mental health journey, Micheline Gador-Whyte from Orygen and Neha Manandhar from batyr to have your frequently asked questions about mental health answered. From overcoming homesickness, loneliness and anxiety, resolving relationship conflicts, and the importance of self-care, we ran you through the support available to you.
Insider Guides were extremely fortunate to be joined by Matthew Noble, Director of Student and Graduate Visas Section at the Department of Home Affairs, to explain changes to student visas, and explore what they all mean for international students both in Australia and overseas.
