11:00 - PROGRAM - AusAID Connect 2013 : Mentoring AusAID students More Information
As with all international students who come to study at UWA, AusAID students face many challenges. They need to understand local geography, adapt to our cultural and social norms, adjust to a different climate and food and quickly come to terms with their role and responsibility in the UWA community. While the staff in the International Centre provides a comprehensive orientation program, it can still take some time for these students to settle in to their new environment.

The AusAID Connect program was established to provide our AusAID students with the experience of meeting and spending time with a local family. Jointly run by the Alumni Relations office and the International Sponsored Student Unit at UWA, it gives you, as a UWA alumnus, the opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a student adjusting to being so far from their home, by hosting them at a dinner in your home.

Alumni interested in being involved firstly need to fill out the program registration form and sign the authorisation. We will then review all applicants and match the students with alumni families based on information provided by both parties. As a part of this matching process we may contact you by telephone. Participating alumni will then receive information on the student as well as the country and culture from which they come.

If you are matched with a student you will need to attend a function on Friday, 8 March 2013 which is for all participating alumni, families and students to meet, start to get to know each other and arrange your hosting dinner.

Close of Applications is the 21st of February
