The International Student Support Team is responsible for assisting international students prior to their arrival in Australia, supporting them during their time at JCU and assisting students towards the completion of their studies.
The team organises and delivers the International Student Orientation that takes place before the start of each semester providing crucial information to all the newly arrived international students. They also organise regular events for students in Townsville and in Cairns some of which include Free Lunch Fridays, Monthly Mingles and weekly Café International (free coffee & live music).
