More and more organisations have made significant commitments to supporting students through hardship funds and welfare support. If you are an international student struggling to meet your living expenses, here is how you can access welfare support.
- All international students are encouraged to stay in touch with their education providers about the range of support which is available to them at this time.
- Many universities and other education providers are offering a range of support to students including fee deferrals, deferred studies or payments, food and accommodation support and mental health and other medical support.
- Contact your Australian education provider to find out what support is being offered by your institution.
State and Territory International Education agencies
Australia’s international education study destination agencies – led by the states and territories – have a vital role in supporting international students who are facing hardship. This includes referring students to appropriate agencies including welfare, mental health and emergency relief.
