NSW International Student Welcome Desk
Study NSW opened the NSW International Student Welcome Desk in 2015 to greet international students arriving at Sydney International Airport.
The welcome desk is located beside the Airport Ambassador's desk in Arrivals Hall A International Terminal.
It is open morning and evening 7 days a week during peak times of February and July and Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings at all other times.
The welcome desk is staffed by local and international student volunteers through a work integrated learning (WIL) program coordinated by Study NSW. Volunteers greet students and offer orientation advice including maps and information about accommodation and transport.
