Counsellors are available to help international students experiencing stresses related to living away from home and studying in a foreign country.
Counselling services for international students
While most international students find their time at the University of Wollongong to be positive and rewarding, students sometimes struggle with cultural differences and other difficult life situations. In addition to the pressure of having to achieve high marks, international students may find themselves feeling lonely, isolated or home sick.
