International student support

There's a range of support available to International students at Western Sydney University. From finding somewhere to live, finding out about your visa conditions or how you can find work in Australia, there's help available.

You are also able to access all services available via Services and facilities - there are staff available and willing to help you during your studies.

The International Students Guide to Australia (opens in a new window) provides practical tips on living/studying in Australia as well as providing information on important issues such mental health and social isolation.

International Student Advice Sessions

The conditions of your student visa require you to study full-time during compulsory study sessions.

However, we understand that unexpected and stressful things can happen in life.

Register for an advice session to learn about your enrolment/visa conditions and other support options available to you. It is important that you know your obligations as well as your rights.

Topics include:

  • How to make sure you are enrolled properly according to your student visa conditions
  • Reducing study load
  • Taking leave of absence
  • Support services
  • Emergency financial assistance

Registration is required and attendance is a must, as we have a $100 gift voucher to give away!
