UNSW Alumni Host Program Registration - Canberra

About the Program


Each year students come from around the world to study at UNSW Canberra – help us welcome them and their families to the wonderful Canberra community. The program links alumni and students inviting them to meet at least twice face-to-face throughout the year.

Volunteering to become an alumni host is open to all UNSW alumni living in the ACT and surrounds who are willing to share their Canberra knowledge and tips with new international UNSW students.

This year, student participation is open to all international students currently studying at UNSW Canberra – our newly arrived students who would like some help settling into Canberra and discovering their new home, and our students who have been in Canberra for a while but who would like to meet new people and learn some new things about the city they call home.

Program objectives and requirements:

  • Provide newly arrived UNSW International students with an opportunity to learn about the culture of UNSW and Canberra from local Alumni.  
  • Provide UNSW International students with an opportunity to meet Alumni and make local friends. 
  • Provide UNSW Alumni with an opportunity to interact with current students, and to share their interests and knowledge about Canberra.
  • Organise at least 2 face-to face catch-ups during the program. Some suggestions include a visit to a museum or gallery, a walk or other exercise, or a coffee or a meal.
  • This is a rolling program with intakes in April and August.

About You

This will assist us in the matching process.


The information you have provided on this form will only be used by UNSW to distribute information about the Alumni Host Program and the program’s related activities.


We will make every endeavour to match Alumni Hosts with international students using the information provided in the biographies, but there is no guarantee every Alumni Host or student will be placed. Both groups will participate in the social gatherings at their own costs and UNSW has no financial responsibility in relation to the gatherings.
