DE International Wellbeing Support Service

The wellbeing of our international students is our number one priority. To ensure our students have access to the support they need, we’ve partnered with Medibank to offer the DE International Wellbeing Support Service. In addition to providing continued access for our students to the Medibank 24/7 Student Health and Support Line, the service also provides new avenues for parents, carers and schools to seek help in supporting the wellbeing of our students.

More information is available on our DE International Wellbeing Support Service webpage.
