Enhancing Equitable Educational Pathways for Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) People Project
We welcome students from migrant and refugee backgrounds and we support their dreams to make a difference in their future lives in Australia. At the USQ we designed support services that are especially tailored for migrants and refugees to meet academic requirements and improve skills and qualifications enhancing employment opportunities.
The USQ Multicultural Centre's project to enhance educational pathways for non-English speaking background (NESB) people has outlined a number of available support for potential students who are of migrant and refugee status so they are able to enjoy university life and at the same time obtain their University degree.
The project provides:
- assistance in the admission process;
- language development to meet academic requirements;
- formation of work groups to promote students helping fellow students;
- forging linkages between existing student groups on campus to address initial feelings of isolation;
- support structures that could provide student advice and further necessary assistance;
- seminars and lectures to disseminate understanding, appreciation and acknowledgement of cultural diversity on campus and;
- individual support for special needs.
