Welfare and Guidance for Under 18’s in the Current Landscape
Date: Friday, 07 May 2021
Time: 12:10 - 12:50
Presenter: Michael Bos
Bear a thought for our international students under 18 years old. Not only are they navigating study and life in another country, they are also working through their teenage years as they mature to adulthood. And they are currently experiencing all of this during a global pandemic in another culture, far from home. For those students living in Australia, many have not been home for over a year now. As you can imagine, this is having not only an impact on the students and their families, but also on the institutions supporting them. This session explores the challenges and corresponding responses in the care and support of international students under the age of 18 years old. We examine the regulations, concessions and ways to ensure the welfare of these students.
