October Greetings!


Summer is flying out of China and into Australia! As October comes to an end, we hope that our alumni had a wonderful National Holiday break, and we are really looking forward to celebrating the 2018 Australia China Alumni Awards with you next month!


In October, we were excited to support alumni events hosted by The University of Queensland and Deakin University in both Beijing and Shanghai. We also had a great time celebrating Halloween with our alumni in Guangzhou at our October Happy Hour Drinks!


There’s less than one month left until the Australia China Alumni Association and TOEFL® - 2018 Australia China Alumni Awards Presentation Dinner! This year, to celebrate the 10th Alumni Awards, previous finalists and winners are invited to attend the dinner on Saturday 24th November in Beijing. Please keep following our updates and news to learn more about our annual flagship event.
