International Students’ Department
The International Students’ Department of the UWA Student Guild exists to look after the welfare of all international students studying in UWA.
We are the peak student body representing international students in the University and act as an umbrella organisation for smaller international students associations and clubs on campus.
All full-fee paying international students are automatically members of ISS. We are fully funded by the Student Guild and these funds are used to organise and subsidise an assortment of activities, sports, games, parties and trips. We also look after the welfare of all international students on campus by advocating on issues that concern international students. Issues that concern us include unnecessary fee hikes, unfair academic assessments or potential discrimination.
ISD is always looking for people who are willing to give their time and energy to representing international students in UWA. Feel free to email us if you are interested in joining any of our sub-committees (Welfare & Education, Social, Sponsorship, Marketing/Lighthouse or Multicultural Week) and if you feel up for it, you can nominate for one of the executive positions during the annual ISD elections.
