Federation Business School

International Student Support Officer

In 2015 the Federation Business School introduced an International Student Support Officer. This role is filled by a current international business school student who gives support and advice at a peer level. The Support Officer assists all international students to become familiar with the university services, processes and faculty specific requirements. This contributes to creating a faculty specific person who supports students engagement and sense of belonging with FedUni.

The position works closely with staff in the Student Experience team within the faculty as well as with student mentors, International Student Support and Student Connect.

The International Student Support Officer pilot project commenced in Semester Two, 2015, and will continue into 2016. This initiative aligns with Priority 2 and Priority 3 of the Student Retention and Success Strategic Plan.
