Lord Mayor's Welcome for International Students

See event description for details on how to connect.

Tuesday 16 March from 3pm to 4:30pm

The City of Sydney hosts an official welcome for international students studying at Sydney institutions every year.

It recognises and celebrates international students’ contributions to Sydney’s vibrancy, liveability and cultural diversity. The welcome marks the start of their journey and making of life-long connections.

This year, the Lord Mayor’s Welcome for International Students will be held virtually on Hopin.

Join your fellow international students in Sydney Australia and those studying online from around the world.

This will be an afternoon (Sydney time) of connection with our Indigenous culture, and the opportunity to visit breakout rooms to link in with organisations that will support you during your studies and through experiences outside the classroom.
