Health advice for international students

For many international students, studying and living in Western Australia can often involve adapting to a new culture and way of living.

Being away from family and friends, and working hard to complete your studies can be difficult. It is important to look after yourself so you stay healthy and safe throughout your stay.

Sexual health can be a difficult topic to discuss, however it is important to talk about it so that you know how to keep yourself and others safe.
