For over 23 years, we have worked closely with local industry and employers and hold an excellent reputation for quality students and graduates. Students can benefit from free resume support, assistance in preparing for job interviews, network and self-marketing techniques. We also maintain a network of industry employers and employment agencies who regularly seek suitable new candidates through EQUALS.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADVISORS The International Student Advisor will assist you with things such as Visas, Overseas Student Health Insurance, applications, and other personal needs. If you need any assistance at all, please visit the Student Services team.
BUDDY PROGRAM During your orientation with EQUALS, you may be introduced to a Buddy (usually a current student or past Graduate) who will be your buddy/mentor during your studies at EQUALS. Your buddy can help you with study skills, getting to know your way around Adelaide, meeting new friends and many other aspects to your academic and personal experience here in Australia.
LOOKING AFTER YOURSELF – ASPECTS OF HEALING Being a busy full-time student means that you need to take care of yourself and your health.
