UIL’s teaching staff are experienced in assisting students with advice relating to their progress, future study plans and any issues they may encounter during their time in Australia. UIL ensures access to professional counsellors to assist students with any areas of concern. UIL coordinates an orientation program for each student entering a partner school. This may involve visiting the school and attending classes, staying at the boarding house, joining activities with Australian students and meeting with the school counsellor for subject selections. Visits to universities and colleges are organised for students to meet with staff to discuss subject selection and participate in orientation programs.
UIL will arrange for a representative to meet with students at the domestic or international airport in Brisbane or the Gold Coast and accompany them to their accommodation or UIL campus. High school students living in a boarding house of a UIL partner school may be met at the airport by that school’s representative. If students are over 18 and wishing to travel independently to their accommodation, the UIL team will advise them of the most convenient form of transport.
In addition, the UIL airport transfer service is a valuable amenity provided at no cost to UniSQ international students who first arrive in Australia. This service ensures that students arriving from abroad have a worryfree and complimentary transportation option to their accommodation in Ipswich, Springfield, or Toowoomba. It’s a thoughtful gesture by UniSQ aimed at easing the transition and welcoming international students to their new academic journey, making their arrival as smooth and cost-effective as possible.
