An introduction to Student Welfare at UWS for International students


On behalf of all student services, welcome
to Australia and to the University of Western Sydney. UWS has a range of student support services that are free and confidential for all international students. The university can seem large and complex
and it can sometimes be difficult to know who to contact and what to do. The Student Welfare Service is here to help. You can speak with a welfare officer about
any problem or stress that you may be facing, including pressures relating to student
visa issues and settling into Australia. A Welfare Officer can help if you have questions
about housing, financial issues, health and stress, your rights and obligations in Australia,
academic progression issues, reducing your number of subjects being studied or taking a break from
studies. You can find out more at our website. UWS has a range of other support services for you as an international student. The hub for academic literacy and learning
run these programs and workshops to provide support for you to develop your academic reading,
writing and study skills. New international students are encouraged
to attend a free international student academic preparation program. It will assist you in learning about Australian
university setting, giving you information on Australian academic culture and assignment
preparation. The program is held just before classes commence
at UWS. UWS also has other programs where you can connect with experienced students
to help you. These include Peer Assisted Study Sessions,
where you can work with other students to help improve your grades. Mates at UWS is all about meeting other students and getting to know the University and your campus. It is a great way to socialise and make new
friends. Other student support services available to international students at UWS include the
counselling service, disability service and multifaith services. To find our more, please visit these websites. UWS also has an afterhours phone number just
for international students. If you need any help or have any problems in the evening or
weekends, please call 1800 735 807. The services at UWS are here to make your
time in Australia as great as it can be.
