Life at Mannix

International and Study Abroad / Exchange students lead various activities to share and celebrate diverse cultures with the broader Mannix community. Each semester, all students organise a great calendar of social events, as well as guest speakers, workshops and more. These are wonderful opportunities to meet new people and make lifelong friends from Australia and from all around the world.


Moving to a new city or country to study can be a big change. We have dedicated staff to assist international and Study Abroad / Exchange students every step of the way. Onsite peer support and counselling services are also available.
