So you don't feel lost when you first arrive in the city where you will study, we offer a free arrival reception. A CSU representative will meet you at the airport or train/bus station in your chosen campus city (between 8am and 8pm) the week prior to orientation week. As we have multiple study locations you will need to take advice from your International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO) about your arrival options.

Travel to your campus

Most international students arrive in Australia at Sydney's International airport and then travel to their campus city by plane, train or bus. When booking connecting flights make sure you give yourself enough time to get through immigration and customs, and to travel to the right terminal or station.

It is important you read carefully all the information provided. If you have any further questions or concerns you are encouraged to contact your International Student Liaison Officer (ISLO).
