Re-thinking accommodation for international students in Sydney

“International students enrich Australian communities, bringing energy, diversity and new ways of seeing things…Education is now Australia’s third biggest export sector, generating $18.6 billion in 2009 and supporting approximately 125 000 jobs across Australia… ”

Council of Australian Government, 2009, International Students Strategy for Australia 2010-2014, page 5

How can we improve international student’s lifes in Australia, particularly in Sydney? In our group we aim to re-think student accommodation by providing more interaction and communication:

  1. Generate un-used space from single unit to create a large specific public space
  2. Provide events and activites for people
  3. Create more interaction for international students to communicate and break down cultural barriers
