A friendly welcome for international students
Study NSW opened the International Student Welcome Desk in 2015 to greet international students arriving at Sydney Airport.
Our goal is to provide a friendly welcome and answer your questions about arriving, living and studying in NSW. We are committed to making your experience in NSW the best it can be.
The International Student Welcome Desk is located in the International Arrivals Hall at Sydney Airport.
The desk currently operates from Monday to Friday, 7:30 am to 1:30 pm AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time).
Our team is committed to providing reliable information to international students, their parents and agents. Learn more below.
