International Students

Being away from home means lots of things to all students. It can include making new friends, new experiences, a new home or residential college, trying new things, homesickness or culture shock.

We support the sexual health of international students through a number of approaches, which include direct and indirect work with the students themselves.

Services and resources we offer

Workshops

We offer a range of workshops that are tailored for international students, including a ‘risky behaviour’ session.

Information stalls

We regularly attend events where it is appropriate for us to hold an information stall, such as Health Month events, O-Week events, and Market days.  Our interactive information stall includes games, prizes, free sexual health information in over 20 languages, free condom packs, and more promotional material. To request a stall, contact Mekita Vanderheyde, Multicultural Resources, Training and Community Development Officer on 3844 9166 or resources@eccq.com.au

Collegiate teams

Collegiate teams are student leaders who live in residential colleges and provide a professional link between administrative staff and residential college students.

Peer mentoring

We are currently in the planning stages of developing a Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) for international students, which we hope to pitch to international student club leaders and participants.
