Each year students around the world come to study at UNSW Canberra at ADFA. The alumni host program links alumni and students, inviting them to meet at least twice throughout the year.
Volunteer to Become an Alumni Host
You can help us welcome the students and their families to the wonderful Canberra community.
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.
Make new global connections and, potentially, new friends for you and your family.
