New website launched for Indian alumni, students in Australia
New Delhi, Feb 18 (ANI): A new networking website has been launched for Indian alumni and students in Australia - www.MyOzNetwork.com.
This is another initiative supported by the Australian Government to enhance the experience of international students in Australia.
MyOzNetwork.com is designed to provide past, present and future Indian students in Australia with their own networking portal online, the Australian High Commission said here in a media release.
Features of the website include individual member pages, blogs, discussion forums and the capacity to share videos, photos, news and events.
Speaking at the launch of the website on 17 February, Australia's High Commissioner to India, Peter Varghese, said "a feature of modern education is the long-lasting networks it creates between students. Those studying overseas should seize the opportunity to build a global network of friends and acquaintances."
"We want this website to assist students in getting the information they need to have a productive and happy time in Australia and to build a network of friends and colleagues that will stay with them throughout their professional lives."
He added "I encourage all past and present Indian students in Australia to log onto www.MyOzNetwork.com to see how the website might be useful to them."
Speaking at the launch, Australian alumni said they had found studying in Australia a rewarding and enriching experience. They welcomed the establishment of MyOzNetwork.com to help them maintain their networks and build new ones.
The website was launched at a Gala Event at the Shangri La Hotel in New Delhi on 17 February. (ANI)
