Become an eFriend and help new international students

La Trobe International Student Services 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 or Weibo. 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 eFriend, you need to:

  • attend a three-hour training session,
  • spend at least three hours each week answering students’ questions from your computer, mobile or tablet via Facebook or Weibo between 23 September and 7 December 2019.
