This two-day online series brings together an incredible array of speakers, workshops and conversations, designed to ignite students’ curiosity about study in Australia, and boost their chances of success.

We know students want to level up their lives, and we’re delighted to present this online series to help these students prepare” says Sasha Hampson, Head of PTE Strategy & Operations.
Over two days, australiaX will host workshops and conversations on topics related to student leadership and engagement, professional development, student support for visas, employability, wellbeing, resilience. All the while, acknowledging the current challenges faced by international students.
australiaX is free to attend and will be held online on Tuesday 6th and Thursday 8th October 2020 with registrations from current and prospective international students from around the globe.
