Build a Support System.
– Connect with Peers: Foster relationships with fellow international students who may share similar experiences. Attend social events, join clubs, or participate in group activities to build a support network.
– Seek Professional Help: Utilize counseling services provided by your educational institution. Trained professionals can offer guidance and support for various mental health concerns.
Establish Healthy Habits
– Prioritize Self-Care: Schedule regular breaks and engage in activities you enjoy. Whether it’s exercise, reading, or creative pursuits, allocating time for self-care is essential.
– Maintain a Balanced Lifestyle: Ensure a healthy balance between academic commitments, social interactions, and personal time. Adequate sleep, proper nutrition, and regular exercise contribute to overall well-being.
Cultural Integration and Adaptation
– Learn about the Local Culture: Familiarize yourself with the local customs, traditions, and social norms. Understanding and appreciating the new culture can ease feelings of isolation and enhance your sense of belonging.
– Set Realistic Expectations: Acknowledge that adapting to a new culture takes time. Be patient with yourself and set realistic expectations. Celebrate small victories and milestones in your journey.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
