Australia’s international student peak body, the Council of International Students Australia (CISA) had its second annual National Conference in Brisbane earlier this month, meeting to discuss the difficulties facing international students, chiefly ensuring safety and security.

CISA was established in 2010 to give a unified voice to the undergraduate international student caucus. It now serves as a platform to lobby individual universities, as well state and federal governments, to increase benefits and protections.
