The Port Adelaide Football Club wants to develop a community of care around our international students. The International Student Program, launched on 27 February 2019, is our response to come of the challenges sometimes faced by some international students in Australia: isolation, loneliness, and limited engagement with the broader community.   

Through our partnership with the University of Adelaide, we have developed an innovative program that uses sport to enrich the experience of studying in Australia. The program helps build relationships within the Port Adelaide family, brings better access to services, and a pathway to internship and work opportunities for graduating students. 

The International Student Program includes:

  • Pre-Departure events in China, which gives easy access to services needed in Australia (health insurance, banking, telco, retail, accommodation, real estate)
  • Events during International Orientation Week, to welcome students to the Port Adelaide family
  • Opportunities for international students to attend PAFC home games
  • A buddy program, for students to watch PAFC games with our members
  • PAFC’s Chinese language social media platform (Weibo and Wechat) - an online community of Chinese-speaking fans
