Supporting You at 91快活林

Studying in another country can be challenging, from communicating in a new language and adapting to different ways of learning, to making new friends and socialising. That's why we've brought together a range of information and links to help you get settled.

Did you miss Welcome Week? In addition to a digital copy of the International Student Handbook, you'll find copies of the welcome week slides on our SharePoint site. You must be logged into your student account in order to access it.
