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 may include 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.

Hard to believe but spring is just around the corner as well as your mid-semester break!

Words on Wheels (WoW) are planning a trip to one of our favorite places here in South Australia ….the Flinders Ranges and Outback !!!

Once again with the kind generosity of Study Adelaide, WoW is planning a full 3 day tour with everything included for only $330 per person. The tour has two dates; the first dates are from 22-24 September and the second tour dates are from 26 – 28 September 2017.

The accommodation at Rawnsley Park is based in the heart of the “Flinders” and we have exclusive use of rooms, camp kitchen and male and female toilets and showers. As well as plenty of stops for walks and photography, part of the excitement  of the tour is  travelling off road through some of the most spectacular gorges in the Flinders Ranges.

This tour is strictly 20 students per tour; so be quick to avoid disappointment. Please see flyer with additional information.

For more information on this tour, please contact Jayne Vaughton
