We provide the support network you need to make friends, connect to your culture, link you up with cultural events and assist you for times when you might come across a difficult situation.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR AUSTRALIAN EXPERIENCE

Live safely in Australia

Australia is a great place to study. In order to make your experience even better always keep the general rules of your safety in mind as if you are back in India.e.g

->Keep your valuable items including documents in a safe place; make sure you keep photocopies of your passport.

->Always carry with you some identification and an emergency contact number.

->Avoid travel alone in late night and let someone know if it’s absolutely necessary. Familiarize yourself with the route on Google map.

->Don’t carry more cash with you than what is required.

Be brand ambassador of India 

Australia is a multicultural society and our individual behaviors have a huge impact on Indian image overall. At the end of the day the way an individual behaves depicts the image of their country; remember that certain aspects of Australian culture are different from your own like

->Invading another person’s privacy or personal space. Maintain some distance from the person you are talking to (at least an arm’s length).

->Being polite and greeting people with a G’day and always using ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’

->Respect others time and avoid being judgmental towards people on the basis of their dress, color
