Friday 28th April saw a productive, fun and informative afternoon tea at The Edge at the State Library, which is the home of the Brisbane Student Hub. It is a great drop in and work space for international students to use. Students can access help in the form of information, advice and referrals on healthcare, employment, budget management, accommodation and legal services, as well as connecting students to local events and activities. Thank you to Multicultural Development Association for putting on this event. ISANA members from both tertiary, secondary and TAFE attended and we met many of the Brisbane student ambassadors, who are clearly doing a wonderful job.
The Hub is open between 12-5pm on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday or by appointment from Monday and Fridaybetween 9am-5pm. The website for more information is: https://mdaltd.org.au/brisbanestudenthub/

We invite ISANA members to nominate continuing international students who will be worthy recipients for your State or Territory. Nominated International students will need to submit complete applications to the ISANA Secretariat firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st July 2017

Following on from the success of the 2014 combined ISANA/ANZSSA conference, the 2017 Conference will be jointly organised by ANZSSA and ISANA on the beautiful Gold Coast, Queensland, famed for its stunning endless beaches, restaurants and natural beauty.
