Description

StudyPerth invites you to the inaugural City of Perth International Education Event Series networking event, Meet the Students.

Come and hear the challenges facing international students and how government and business can collaborate with the international education sector to resolve these issues. StudyPerth has also invited their 10 International Student Ambassadors who, over the next 12 months, will advocate for international students and draw attention to the benefits that international education brings to WA.

This event will be the first of a series to be held over the next 12 months, that will assist international students in their study journey and help them participate further in community life.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • The international student perspective – What do they want to get out of the international student experience and what are the challenges they face when they arrive?
  • The government perspective – Why does government see it as important to help develop the international education sector and how can they help international students?
  • The business perspective – How can business become more engaged and how can the sectors work together to deliver better outcomes for international students?

Please join us for an evening of discussion and networking. Drinks and canapes provided.
