International Student Support Staff
The team at International Student Support are dedicated to supporting international students throughout their studies.
Augustine (a.k.a. Gus) mostly provides support to Australia Awards scholarship students. He also manages International Student Support Newsletter and assists in ISC events. If you have any contributions to make to International Student Support News & Events blog, or to our weekly Newsletter, he's the one to contact. Gus joined International Student Support team in 2010, when he decided to take a diversion from Engineering to support international students. Come in and say ‘Hi’ to Gus - he loves to chat with students and answer their queries!
