Student leaders and ambassadors
There are around 35,000 students from all over the world hitting the books in Sydney right now. To help international students get the most out of their experience, the City of Sydney undertook its inaugural International Student Leadership and Ambassador (ISLA) program in 2013.
ISLA aims to help a group of students from abroad to improve their communication and leadership skills, get some practical work experience, expand their professional networks and make new friends along the way.
Ambassadors from the ISLA program will also help the City better connect with international student communities and help us deliver more exciting and relevant projects and events.
Welcome to the class of 2013
The first City of Sydney ISLA program consisted of 40 passionate, diverse and culturally rich representatives. In May 2013, participants were selected from 18 countries, including China, Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Russia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Bangladesh, India, Liberia, Malaysia, Mauritius, the Philippines and Tanzania.
There are 12 educational providers based locally and in surrounding areas that are represented in the group, including the University of Sydney, University of Technology and the University of New South Wales, TAFE along with the central Sydney campuses of the Australian Catholic University, University of Wollongong, Charles Sturt University and Central Queensland University.
The ambassadors include undergraduate and postgraduate students.
More than 126 applications poured in from students wishing to take part. The successful candidates for 2013 were selected based on previous leadership and volunteer experience in their educational institutions, successfully graduating from the program on 4 December 2013.
