To celebrate 100 years of international students at the University of Sydney, we collected stories relating to international students at Usyd. This has created a digital archive of stories to become part of the Library’s digital collection.

The collection contributes to the history of international students at the University and raises awareness of the contributions of the international student cohort. Sharing and discussing stories also helps shine a light on the ways the experiences of international students could be improved.
