A little bit about the International Students' Department

​The International Students' Department represents the international contingent of the student body at UWA, and acts as an umbrella organisation for international students' associations and clubs on campus.

The International Students’ Department of UWA is the peak student body representing international students in the University and acts as an umbrella organisation for smaller international students’ associations and clubs on campus.

All full-fee paying international students are automatically members of ISD. We organise and subsidise an assortment of activities, sports, games, parties and trips. We also look after the welfare of all international students on campus by advocating on issues that concern international students. We are comprised of 4 sub-departments: Social, Welfare, Education and Public Relations.
