Make the world your campus! (Issue 7, 2009)
As part of their promotional activities, the La Trobe Abroad team organised the 2009 Exchange Fair to advertise student exchange and study abroad programs and opportunities.
The fair was held on Wednesday, 1 April, and seven partner institutions from the US, Sweden, Germany and Austria sent representatives.
As part of the promotion, current and past La Trobe exchange students volunteered to offer information about their exchange experiences or about the programs available in their home countries.
‘I was very happy with the turn-out of students and with the interest shown in the programs offered by the university I am representing,’ said Mr Noureddine Rafili, Head of the International Relations Office at University of Applied Sciences in Austria.
The event was an incredible success, with students queuing at all booths to ask questions. Enthusiastic former exchange students answered queries and supplied information to the students. The weather was fantastic, which made it easier for the crowd to enjoy the barbeque that was prepared by the La Trobe Abroad team.
The event concluded with a late afternoon cocktail reception where La Trobe staff and partner institutions representatives met to share ideas and celebrate the success of the event.
La Trobe University offers a multitude of exchange possibilities in several countries. To find out more visit the Exchange and Study Abroad page.
