International Student Summer Program

This program is a great way to meet other students, stay connected, have fun and enjoy your time throughout the summer break.

There are a range of social, cultural, wellbeing and career development activities and events planned.

Information about upcoming activities are detailed below and will be regularly updated as we continue to finalise some details, so bookmark this page and check back in for the latest confirmed activities. Don't forget to also check your student emails and join the UniSA G’Day Mates Community Facebook group to receive regular updates.

You don’t need a $2000 camera to take good pictures! Join the Summer Photography Walking Tour with photographer guide Juan and learn how to creatively use your own digital camera or mobile phone to tell your own travel story of Adelaide. You will discover some great places across the city to take photos of. After a snappy-happy day you will have light refreshments to enjoy as a group.

Spaces are limited, so be sure to get in quick.
