In line with Federal Government and Australia’s Chief Medical Officer’s advice in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and gatherings, Flinders University has made the decision to cancel ALL events, activities, meetings and gatherings at Oasis until further notice.

What is Flinders Mates?

Flinders Mates connects Australian and International students for conversation and fun times. Flinders Mates is a great way to meet interesting people, expand your intercultural intelligence and build global networks.  Sessions are run by student facilitators who create a safe and informal space for people to connect around conversation or activities they enjoy like cooking, photography, art, music or whatever else you’d like to suggest!

The program was piloted at Flinders University in October 2019 at Oasis under the moniker ‘Global Communicators’ with a bigger roll out planned for 2020.

How can I get involved?

Facilitate – Increase your connections, grow your Intercultural Intelligence and gain Horizon Award points by volunteering one hour a week over the uni year to facilitate a Flinders Mates group.

Participate – For anyone keen to attend a group, or find out more, contact Hannah

Groups for 2020 are on hold because of Coronavirus. Stay tuned to the Oasis Facebook page, to get timely updates on when the program might be re-launching.
