Armidale International Association (AIA)
Armidale International Association was first established in 1980 to form a bridge between international students, their families and the Armidale community. Initially, the Association worked predominantly with students studying in the Faculty of Economics who were mostly AUSAID students. Since 1988, AIA has broadened its activities to support the social, cultural and welfare needs of all international students studying at UNE, with special emphasis placed on the needs of students and their families.
AIA plays an important role in providing support and generating a positive rapport with international students who return home and speak favourably of their experience of the University and the Armidale community. AIA consists of an extensive network of volunteers from the local community, the University and the international student body.More information about AIA can be found at:
