Since 2002, OzTREKK has helped send hundreds of Canadian students to Australia for professional degrees. Our mission is simple: To prepare students for a first-class international educational experience in Australia. We are experts in the Australian university education and we will assist you at every stage—from application to arrival—so that nothing is forgotten. OzTREKK is your Canadian connection to study in Australia!
OzTREKK pre-departure events a success!
we are proud to assist our students in any way we can—including holding
in-person pre-departure get-togethers. Our pre-dep prep aims to guide
students through the final steps as they prepare to live and study in Australia.
It is also a great opportunity to meet other students who will also be
travelling to Australia to study. This year, we hit Toronto
and Vancouver, and we are so pleased we had a chance to meet you!
OzTREKK staff in the “photo booth”
This year, many of our OzTREKK students and some of their family
members joined us for these important seminars, and, as always, it was
just as fun for OzTREKK staff as it was for the students—just check out
video slideshow! What a great way to prepare for your trek to Australia
and get the latest 4-1-1 on what to expect—and meet some students who
will be studying with you!
So, we send out a big thank you to everyone who came out to participate!
