The City of Darwin Lord Mayor has welcomed international students from around the world to their new home.

Lord Mayor Katrina Fong Lim welcomed the international students as part of their initiation into university and study life during CDU’s Orientation Week.

Following the welcome, the students attended the Northern Territory Government’s Welcome Reception for 2015 International Students at NT Parliament House.

More than 300 international students from about 40 countries are starting their studies at Casuarina and Palmerston campuses this semester.

Countries included India, Nepal, the Philippines, China, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Germany, Pakistan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Lebanon and the United States.

The international student Orientation program is designed to provide valuable information for international students to help them prepare for their studies.
