Every semester the University of Sydney welcomes thousands of international students to study and experience the wonders of Sydney lifestyle and Australian culture.

Volunteers with great local knowledge are needed to help facilitate social activities throughout the semester that aim to help international students feel welcomed to Sydney.

If you love being social and meeting new people from around the world, it's the perfect fit for you.


Roles and Duties

Campus Race

and requires social and energetic volunteers who are confident leading a large group. The next Campus Race is on Thursday, 19 July.

Day Trips

Help students settle in to their new home at one of ISL’s biggest events. You can either lead students across Sydney in epic tours as a Group Leader or assist in the registration process as a Registration Officer.

Australian Discussion Group 

ADG Facilitators are local Aussie students who speak English as a first language and are comfortable helping small groups of students practice English.
