The Brisbane Welcomes International Students (BWIS) festival is the ultimate welcome experience for Brisbane’s new and existing international students. Held yearly, BWIS is Queensland's largest international student inclusion event and a great opportunity for locals to get involved and welcome students from all over the world who head to Brisbane each year to undertake their studies.
The event showcases over 60 exhibitors, including education institutions, transport providers, banks, public transport services, community engagement groups, sporting groups and student accommodation providers. Along with providing information on all the things a student could need during their time here, BWIS also entertains with live music, wildlife displays, street performers and much more! Through this community approach Study Brisbane hopes to provide essential orientation information for students.

The next BWIS festival will be held on 1 March 2014 at South Bank's Cultural Forecourt. If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor, or would like to find out more about sponsorship options, visit our Corporate section.
