International Friends Program Kicks Off

Tuesday, 23 March 2021

The second intake of the International Friends Program kicked off on Monday 22 March 2021.

There was a buzz of excitement at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club, as international students met their local hosts for the first time.

Study Geelong’s International Friends Program provides a supportive platform for international students in Geelong, and local community members, to build connections, share interests and enjoy cross-cultural exchange.

An international student is matched with a local person/family for 12 weeks to get to know each other and share culture. 

This intake sees 21 students from Bangladesh, China, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Taiwan participating.

We can't wait to hear their stories.
