International Student Support

SCU International is committed to assisting international students. In 2015, our team was ranked #1 in Australia for international student support by the International Student Barometer (ISB) for the third year in a row.

SCU International will help with:

  • pre-departure information
  • settling in
  • orientation
  • student visa advice and health insurance advice
  • dedicated advisers
  • wellbeing and welfare.


Orientation week is held the week before classes start and is compulsory for international students. It is designed to help the student understand university, enrol in units and register in classes, understand student visa rules and meet other students. This week also includes connecting with our schools, getting to get to know the academics and learning about the fun activities to join at SCU. Of course there are lots of social events in 'O' week and its a great way to get started!
