Request to universities in Australia

Request to universities in Australia to support International students

Amid the current COVID-19 situation which has impacted the international students, AISECS sent a letter to the universities  in Australia as a request to help and support for the students who are away from their families and going through tough times here.

Many of the international students have lost their jobs due to the closing of businesses and because of lockdown, it’s not easy for them to pay the fees, their rentals, and mobile/internet bills.
