Student Workshops and Events

Living in a new country can be a daunting experience as you adjust to a new environment, a different culture and a different way of life. Hosted by a team of Australian and international UniSA students, these workshops and events will assist you with settling into and enjoying life in Adelaide.

What I wish I had known

ONLINE via Zoom | Week 4, Wednesday 17 August 2022

Our G'Day Mates students will present information and advice relating to being a new student at UniSA and helpful hints and tips to give you the best possible start to your degree. This is an important session particularly for international students who arrived late to Australia due to visa delays or perhaps will be studying this semester externally from offshore.


Dates for the following workshops are to be determined.


Take care, mate

This workshop focuses on UniSA wellbeing and support services. Guest speakers from UniSA Medical Clinic, BATYR and BUPA Overseas Student Health Cover will explore the Australian health system and UniSA student support services.

Fair go, mate

This workshop focuses on working in Australia, taxation, work rights and responsibilities. A guest speaker from Australian Tax Office (ATO) will explain the rules for income tax, superannuation and working in Australia, including minimum wage and employment contracts. An ATO representative will be available to respond to your work related queries. This is a great opportunity for students who are either working or looking for work to have their questions about pay, tax and super answered.

Get a job, mate

This workshop is designed for international students planning to remain in Australia after graduation. A UniSA Careers Adviser will guide you to develop your career plan, writing a cover letter, resume, responding to selection criteria and navigating a graduate job interview.
