📝 Description

Finding accommodation nowadays seems to be a bigger hurdle than getting accepted at an institution or even obtaining a student visa. Study destinations across the country are dealing with capacity issues and increases in rent, set-off against an increase in demand that stems from a rise in international students coming to Australia.

In this session, representatives from student accommodation service providers discuss and respond to the housing challenges that exist across Australia, and what can be done by educators, agents, local government bodies or even students themselves to secure suitable accommodation in the study destination of their choice.
