La 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/or Weibo. In return, you will receive a reference letter, be awarded a certificate for your contribution, and gain experience in professional training and leadership development.
To become an e-friend, you need to:
- attend a one-hour training session in January 2017
- spend at least three hours each week answering students’ questions from your computer, mobile or tablet via Facebook or Weibo between 9 January and 31 March 2017.
To join the e-friend program, register today online.
