Path to Australian beach with view to water

International students: join our free sessions to learn how to surf and stay safe in the water

One of the best things about living in Australia is taking a swim at our beautiful beaches during the warmer months. 

However, swimming in the ocean does carry risks. We encourage you all to join our free water safety sessions to learn basic water safety skills that will give you the confidence to enjoy your time at the beach, pool, river, lake or during any other kind of water activity. We’re also running a free surfing session in Warrnambool for those of you who would like to try this incredible sport!

Register today – it’s a great way to meet other students, spend some time in the beautiful outdoors and have heaps of fun!
