Welcome to the International Student Support (ISS) News & Events blog! The blog has been developed to supplement the International Students’ weekly newsletter, which we email to your student email each teaching week (please read it carefully, as it includes important information about your student visa!). Staff from the ISS will update this blog regularly throughout the year with information about what’s on in Adelaide and at the University. You will also find links and information about other opportunities for international students.
