Health & wellbeing support
for international students
Studying abroad is an exciting experience but with all that is happening in the world with Coronavirus (COVID-19) there is also a lot of uncertainty. Here at Radiant we can support you by helping you find the right wellbeing support for you and your needs.
Find support to feel your best
Whilst many international students enjoy their time studying in Australia, exploring a new culture, language and educational environment, it can also have its challenges.
It can be difficult moving away from family and friends, finding employment or housing, coping with homesickness or navigating Australia’s healthcare system. COVID-19 has added to these challenges.
It is understandable that these challenges and experiences might impact on your wellbeing, possibly leaving you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, uncertain and generally not like yourself. The good news is that there is a broad range of support available to help you feel your best.
Radiant has resources and tools available that are specifically tailored to help international students. We also facilitate access to experienced counsellors and practitioners so students like yourself can find the support you need during your time in Australia.
Invest in your wellbeing

When you’re feeling stressed, down, sad or overwhelmed, it can be hard to know what’s really going on. It’s important to know when something might not be right, and asking for help is a key step in finding the right support.
There are many ways that you can invest in your wellbeing on a daily basis, from developing healthy habits around eating, exercise and mindfulness to connecting and sharing your experiences with family and friends.
