OzTREKK hosts Australian university representatives (and tries kopi luwak coffee)

Australian universities have student offices, like OzTREKK's, right around the world to provide personalized assistance and country-specific info. OzTREKK is funded by our eight Australian universities, and our services are free to students across Canada.

The select Australian universities we work with pay us because OzTREKK makes the application process easy and efficient for you, and for the universities. They’ve chosen us as their Canadian representative because they know that we’re experts in matching what you need to what they offer.

The relationship we forge with our university partners is extremely important. We use these meetings to maintain our close working relationships as well as to improve our services for our students.

A walk along the Tay: Some of the OzTREKK clan with our Australian university representatives

Every year, our Australian university partners fly to Canada in order to participate in our Study in Australia Fairs. These fairs always provide an excellent opportunity for everyone to meet Australian university staff members and to learn more about their universities, programs, campus lifestyle, entry requirements, accommodation options and more. This year, we welcomed staff from
  • Bond University
  • James Cook University
  • Macquarie University
  • Monash University
  • University of Melbourne
  • University of Newcastle
  • University of Queensland
  • University of Sydney

    In between our Study in Australia Fairs in Western Canada and here in Ontario, Oct. 9 provided a mini respite for our busy Australian crew, and we invited them to an OzTREKK office tour and a delicious lunch. Lucky for us, the Wednesday proved to be a beautiful day—cloudless and warm! It was a wonderful day to greet our Australian university friends and show them around Perth, Ontario.

    After a leisurely walk around Stewart Park and beautiful downtown Perth, we enjoyed a hearty fusion luncheon at the Stone Cellar and then returned to the OzTREKK office via the tranquil and winding Tay River, where the surrounding trees were bursting with autumn colour.

    Once back in the office, we enjoyed presentations and a typical Aussie teatime!

    Many thanks go out to all of our OzTREKK Australian university partners for your continued support and camaraderie, and of course, for your valuable assistance and incredibly entertaining stories!

    P.S. Thank you for the kopi luwak coffee; it was very… interesting!
