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 face-to-face events, activities, meetings and gatherings at Oasis until further notice. Some of our programs have moved online to FLO. Visit and join Oasis Online for more details.

Fun informal conversation sessions led by chaplains focused on learning about each others’ cultures, improving conversation and social skills, developing cross-cultural relationships, build closer connections within the university community and becoming truly global citizens.

An opportunity to gain confidence in communicating in a safe, encouraging environment. Bring your questions and be prepared to participate, make friends and gain an understanding of other cultures.

Mutually beneficial for both domestic and international students. A great opportunity for international students to practice their English conversation skills. All are welcome to join this informal and flexible group.

Partners of International students also welcome.
