Clear your doubts face-to-face with representatives

University reps will be on site to answer all your personal questions about your next academic steps. Take this golden opportunity to ask about what each course entails and the overall course fee - there’s nothing better than getting first-hand insight.
STA Travel - to settle your big move abroad
Luggage allowances, accommodation and travel fares are other areas of concern for many international students. Speak to the representatives at the STA Travel booth to help sort out your pathway towards uni life.
