The ABC of Student Life workshops to help students settle down in Melbourne

NEW to Melbourne? The Australian Federation of International Students is hosting a series of workshops to help international students get the building blocks of life overseas down pat. Lunnie Gan has more.
AFIS ABC of Student Life

Settling down in a new environment is never easy. You’re now in charge of your own health, social life and financial planning.

Questions newly arrived students often ask include: Where should I go when I’m sick? How much should I’ll be spending? How do I make new friends?

International student organisation AFIS is hosting a series of free workshops called The ABC of Student Life on Wednesday, April 6 at the Multicultural Hub to help answer some of these questions.

The workshops will touch on health management, budget management and social life, including tips on staying healthy, places to go when you’re sick, tools to keep track of your expenses, insights to Australian life and culture, how to deal with homesickness and expand your social networks.

The ABC of Student Life will be held on April 6 from 4-6.30pm at the Multicultural Hub, 506 Elizabeth St, Melbourne. The event is free, but do register early to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
