Become an e-friend in Semester One, 2018

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 2018
  • spend at least three hours each week answering students’ questions from your computer, mobile or tablet via Facebook or Weibo between 15 January and 23 March 2017.
