July Greetings​


July brought a lot of news to ACAAQ! We welcomed fresh graduates back to China and gathered with Chinese students and professionals in Melbourne, Australia.

ACAA Events




ACAA is continuing to work in Melbourne to support Chinese students who are about to graduate and take on the status of a Chinese alumni. It is commonly known that 86% of Chinese students who study in Australia will return to China to pursue their career, whether that be taking over their family business, starting their own or working in international companies back home with the added value of experience in Australia.


Chinese soon-to-be alumni are faced with many difficulties leading up to graduation. For the most part these difficulties include career opportunities in Australia and the big decision of whether to return home or stay. Increasingly, fresh Chinese graduates from Australian universities are in need of specifi

c support, which is what ACAA Melbourne provides! We are not only opening up ACAA to Chinese graduates and final year students to intern for us in Australia, but also run events to bring together the community to discuss and un-pack these challenges.


Though we were only 20 people who came together to have a coffee, amazing and meaningful things were talked about. At this event, ACAA aimed to change the lives and inspire Chinese students and alumni through one story and one coffee at a time. It is important we support and connect each other and have more open discussions like this. Chinese alumni are all ambassadors for the brilliance of Australian education and are extremely talented individuals who have knowledge of both cultures and fluency in both languages! We see that the soon-to-be alumni are the emerging leaders of this space and we are very excited to be connecting them in Melbourne.







On July the 24th, ACAA attended the Deakin Employment Expo. It was wonderful to meet some familiar faces and also welcome new members. ACAA will continue are warm partnership with Deakin University and are very happy to support Deakin’s student and alumni community.

We shared our Job opportunities board at the expo, which is a platform free for our members to access that posts over 100 graduate jobs and internships in China. It only takes 1 minutes to register and you can start your career journey!
