As students, we believe that combating ignorance and getting informed about issues might be one of the most powerful ways in which we can make an impact in the field. Everyone is welcome to attend our regular seminars from prominent individuals who have been working with refugees and asylum seekers. These seminars are based around several key themes and are structured to empower you with knowledge to be able to effectively understand issues and apply yourself.
