A brush with a bogan

Ombudsman

As an international student studying and living overseas unaccompanied, sometimes you might come across situations when you feel insecure and anxious when encountering unexpected behaviours such as racism. One thing you can do, is to seek help from Student Ombudsman.

International students are usually oblivious of the Student Ombuds service provided by our university when they are confronted with undesirable issues. If you feel any uni staff or student has unethically treated you or if you feel uncomfortable with a disagreement or dispute with any individual, unit or department within the University of South Australia, please do not hesitate to contact our Ombuds Office.

The Student Ombud would be a last resort who can be approached when all else has failed within the University. The Student Ombud is there to provide advice and independent investigation (if appropriate) regarding your complaint. Contacting the Student Ombudsman is a free service and all of your personal information will be kept confidential.

UniSA has always had a strong commitment to equity and diversity. As an international student, please always keep calm and don’t do anything you might regret.

    That’s where a 556 takes care of business, because I actually had someone did a driveby egg throwing at me. The driver ought to be hanged by colonial British standards.
