Your Invitation

The University of Melbourne is delighted to welcome delegates to our wonderful city for the ANZSSA 2018 Conference in December 2018.  We look forward to seeing old friends and new faces back to Melbourne after many years away.

Our theme, “Authentic Partnerships for Quality Outcomes” aims to provide opportunities to learn new ways to enable students to achieve their educational and life goals through actively working together.

We invite you to help us shape a dynamic program of seminars, workshops and papers so that outcomes from the conference can inspire you to influence and shape your practice and approach to supporting students.

After the conference sessions we promise you a social program that will show you the best that Melbourne has to offer.  Gourmet food, art lined laneways and a bustling arts scene are a short tram trip away from the University’s cloisters in elegant Parkville.  After hours the city’s hidden eateries, bars and nightspots are perfect to continue networking and make new friends.  The finest coffee outside of Italy will ensure you make it to your session the following morning.

So please join us at the University of Melbourne, in December in Australia’s Education State.
