Description

Reaching out to International Students: How can student counselling and wellbeing services become more accessible and inclusive?

HEIs report a relatively high number of international students facing adjustment and mental health challenges and yet international students can be reluctant to fully engage with support services. What most affects international students’ wellbeing and what kinds of supports would help? Speakers at this seminar will present relevant research findings, brief us on national initiatives and share experience of approaches that have worked.
