Speak and Connect is a series of peer-facilitated workshops designed to help students meet new friends, practice and develop their English language and communication skills, and give useful tips and strategies for connecting at university.

Our peer-facilitated programs are delivered by experienced local and international students, who are trained and mentored by the Learning Hub team. Peer facilitators understand the challenges you might be going through and will be able to give you useful tips to make the most of your university journey.



This workshop will be held on-campus every semester.

Target group

We recommend that international students and students from non-English speaking backgrounds in their first or second year take this program.
