Overseas Students Conference

Overseas Students Conference

An Overseas Students Conference is to be held in Christchurch this year under the sponsorship of NZUSA.

"It is designed to determine the nature and extent of problems facing Overseas Students and to evolve solutions which can be applied within the context of the University." said Rhaman Khan, the organiser.

"Overseas students have many problems tike other students." he said, "but they also have some that are unique."

This is to be an open meeting and representatives from the University Grants Committee. The External AM Division of the External Affairs Department and the Labour Department will be attending.

About 150 representatives are expected to attend. Five delegates from Victoria are among the 22 delegates from Students' Associations outside the Christchurch area.

Speakers will present papers on specialist topics that concern overseas students and their problems in New Zealand.

Previous Conferences on Overseas Students have been held in 1966 and 1968 and this year's Conference will attempt to involve overseas students in formulating NZUSA policy.
