Airport Welcome Service

StudyPerth are looking forward to welcoming back international students to Western Australia. As part of the reopening, we are relaunching our popular Airport Welcome Service.

For arriving students, the Airport Welcome Service is the first destination we recommend visiting when you land at Perth Airport.


For students arriving in Perth

If you're a new international student or returning to Perth, we want your first experience arriving in your new home to be the best that it can be!

Student testimonial

"Just wanted to say, as a US student who studied in Perth, I vividly remember those who greeted us at the airport when we finally touched down. After multiple days traveling, it’s so comforting to see friendly faces to guide you in the right direction. Thanks for all you do!"
