How2Melbourne: International Student Info Sessions Semester 2

Are you an international student commencing this semester? If so, this session is for you!

Presented by RMIT Kirrip Stewards (current RMIT students who are leaders in the RMIT Kirrip student-led community), this session will help you get your head around life, study and work at RMIT as an international student​. We will cover the basics of adapting to the culture of Melbourne and Australia, how to make sure you're following requirements as an international student, what support is available to you and how you can make connections both professionally and socially.

The session will conclude with a short walking tour around Melbourne CBD, ending with time for questions and answers over a free lunch at the Oxford Scholar pub.
