International Students' Senate Convenor


The International Students’ Senate Convenor leads the International Students’ Senate, an assembly that represents the views, interests, and needs of all international students at the University.

The International Convenor drives the identification of issues that affect the education, educational and extra-curricular experiences of international students. The International Convenor also ensures the Senate genuinely captures and represents the voice of all international students at the University. The International Convenor leads campaigns on all relevant issues and supports the advocacy of international students and their concerns.

In addition to the overarching functions of the Senate, it is the Convenor’s responsibility to monitor and support the Senate Representatives.

The International Convenor works closely with the President, UNSA staff, and the other members of the Executive to achieve these responsibilities.

Sarthak Birani

Namaste from this Indian in Aus! I, Sarthak Birani, quite self-explanatory hail from India. Spaceships and the psych of working mechanisms has intrigued me since my childhood, which brings me to the University of Newcastle and UNSA for pursuing Mechatronics. This year to me, is an actual "Year of the Tiger", I just can't wait to start working with y'all. My life outside of UNSA includes reading about the Indian Army. Basketball has a fair magic sword on me, trading and investing, playing with dogs, and exploring Australia. A fun fact about me, is that I LOVE reading facts... Fun facts. And that's a fact. :)
