Welcome Back! RLC's guide for international students returning to NSW

Redfern Legal Centre has put together a Welcome Back guide to support the return of NSW's international students.

After 18 months of disruption to face-to-face study, RLC's International Student Legal Service NSW is thrilled to be welcoming back international students to our shores!

In order to support the return of international students, RLC has created a comprehensive information pack to provide students with access to information to support the transition into full-time study in NSW.

Created especially for international students in NSW, RLC's Welcome Back guide includes key information on issues like employment, tenancy, and healthcare, and advice on how to access banking services and an Australian tax file number. It also includes tips on getting around by public transport, and what you need to know before driving in Australia - either with an Australian or international drivers licence.

The guide also includes important information on obtaining free COVID-19 tests and vaccinations, and advice on how students can use their OSHC to claim back part of the cost of other medical expenses while in Australia.

The resource also features useful organisational contact numbers, and even a guide to Aussie slang, to help decipher all those strange things that only Australians say! (Struth!)

RLC's Welcome Back guide will be made available to education providers across the state and distributed to students via RLC's International Legal Service NSW, and our funding partners and supporters. It can also be accessed via RLC's website.
