Hey, Bondies! Your pre-departure webinar is coming up next week!

So, you’re starting at Bond University Law School in September. You’ve got lots to do before you book your flight to the Gold Coast. This is where OzTREKK comes in.

OzTREKK is proud to support our students from start to finish. That means we help you with your application, your offer, your acceptance, your pre-departure preparations—and your arrival!

Since our Bondies are scattered across Canada, we’ve decided to hold a pre-departure webinar on Tuesday, July 23 from 6 – 9 p.m. to connect everyone together. Just like the in-person, pre-dep seminars, the webinar is a great opportunity to get prepared for this exciting, new step in your life!

The webinars provide an excellent avenue to learn more about the Australian student visa process, your accommodation options, Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), travel arrangements, banking and finances, and general info about the Australian lifestyle and culture. Essentially, the session breaks down what to do prior to leaving Canada and what to do upon arrival in Australia. This is your chance to get your questions answered—and reassure your parents to boot! Remember, there is no such thing as a silly question: If you are wondering about how to get a bank card, you can bet your bottom dollar everyone else is, too. Questions are via chat, so ask away, Bondies!

Want to sit in on the online pre-dep seminar? Please email OzTREKK Admissions Officer Shannon Tilston at shannon@oztrekk.com for details about how you can register.
