Wednesday 4th December: 1000-1100
Panel: Selection of ISANA 2019 student bursary winners and representatives from the Council of International Students Australia (CISA)
Student representatives and alumni will reflect on their overall student experience and journey thus far. They will consider their experiences and reflect on the programs and information that education providers and agencies have provided to them. If the students were in charge of the student experience, what would they advocate and how would this be justified? Given the challenges of budgets, limited resources and student needs, what would our students propose?
