>AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 13 COURSES AND DISCIPLINES >ENGINEERING AND IT ‘Many institutions provide on-arrival information sessions that cover practical instructions and cultural advice.’ CULTURAL AND RELIGIOUS FACILITIES The large institutions provide cultural and religious facilities for people of different backgrounds. This may include offering a range of cuisines in the cafeterias, including halal and kosher foods. For religious needs, some institutions have multi-faith centres and many campuses have Muslim prayer rooms. Cultural and religious support can also be found through the many clubs and societies on campus. If you feel sad because of culture shock, homesickness or study pressures, your international counsellor can give you advice. International students do not have to worry about being on their own during tough times or emergencies. SIGHTSEEING AND FUN ACTIVITIES When you’re ready to start having fun, making new friends and taking adventures, turn to your institution. International offices and some education agencies organise day trips, short holidays and a variety of activities including ‘get to know you’ parties, concerts and sightseeing trips.
