Bendigo libraryLa Trobe International is looking for current international students who are willing to help new students with their preparations and settling into university life.

An e-friend is an experienced La Trobe University student who volunteers time to answer queries about living in Australia and studying at La Trobe University through Facebook and Weibo.

To become an e-friend, you need to:

  • attend a one-hour training session in September 2016
  • spend at least three hours each week answering students’ questions from your computer, mobile or tablet via Facebook or Weibo between 19 September and 9 December 2016.
