Improving the wellbeing of international students in the Northern Territory is the goal of new programs being offered at Charles Darwin University.

These programs are made possible thanks to Allianz; Charles Darwin University’s SSAF Funds and the Northern Territory Government’s International Student Wellbeing Grant Program.

All current international students at CDU are encouraged to participate in these programs for social, physical and mental wellbeing.

    Note that precautionary COVID-19 measures are still in place for all activities:

    • Physical distancing guidelines – please adhere to 1.5m spacing.
    • If you are sick with cold and flu symptoms – you must not attend. This is extremely important to ensure you do not pass on a cold or flu and make others vulnerable. If you are sick, and you do attend, you may be asked to leave the area.
    • If you are in a vulnerable population group or with pre-existing medical conditions that increase your vulnerability to cold and flu strains, you are advised not to attend.
