La Trobe International students in CISA

La Trobe International students attend CISA Conference in Cairns

Our international students, Ersi Terolli and Susan Saldanha and a few members of The International Student’s Association and the Student Union represented La Trobe University at the 8th annual Council of International Students Australia (CISA) Conference in Cairns.

Ersi and Susan were sponsored by International Student Services (ISS) to travel to Cairns and attend the national conference to represent the views of international students and to learn about what other Universities are doing in support of International Students. They were both delighted to have the opportunity to learn from other peers, leaders, conference speakers and government representatives.

Ersi who is an ISS officer had the opportunity to interact, share and learn from other education stakeholders on codes of best practice for the benefit of our international students at La Trobe. Ersi also present the award for CISA ‘Postgraduate Student of the Year’, which La Trobe University proudly sponsored.

Susan as an ISS I-Lead representative was thrilled to interact and network with other student leaders from across Australia. Susan felt inspired and will use what she learned to improve the overall student life through the I-Lead Committee.

International Student Services is very proud of our student leaders and is happy to provide continuous help and support. We are delighted to place the students at the heart of what we do.
