The International Student Coordinator can support you in most cases and if not. Additionally, our Welfare Officer for International Students visits each campus regularly and can meet you onsite.

Our staff in the International Students Office provide a wide range of services including:

  • Ensuring your arrival to Chisholm is successful and worry-free
  • You are settled into appropriate accommodation
  • You are introduced into student life at Chisholm
  • Tuition Fee payment services
  • Regular social gathering of international students
  •  Compliance associated with the Student Visa regulations
  •  Any welfare issues where you may need some support.


Orientation is an informative, friendly and fun way to prepare for your study at Chisholm.

You must attend our orientation for new students.We make it compulsory because we want to be sure that you are comfortable and confident from your first day in class.

At orientation you’ll receive important information about your campus, Chisholm and Melbourne, and enjoy meeting new friends and your teachers.

When you accept your offer, we’ll send you a letter that gives you the date, time and location of orientation.
