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. In return, you will receive a reference letter and 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 September
- spend at least three hours each week answering students’ questions from your computer, mobile or tablet via Facebook between 18 September and 8 December 2017.
To join the e-friend program, register today online.
