International and study abroad & exchange student orientation activities

Welcome to Australia and welcome to the University of Sydney! We offer several programs to newly arriving international and study abroad & exchange (STABEX) students that will help you adjust and make a smooth transition to your new environment. During these sessions, you will meet our staff and other students, enjoy social activities, and have the opportunity to ask questions about the University or life in Sydney. We recommend different sessions, depending on your type of study.
