Experience French culture at UniSA

If you have ever wanted to study or live in France, this is a must event.

Learn about opportunities for French student exchange and explore the connections, relationships and collaborations between France and UniSA. It’s your chance to meet representatives from French universities and companies such as Naval Group and learn more about studying in France. 

Have a French culinary experience, listen to live French music, watch a French film (yes subtitles…), play petanque (like bocce) and talk Fake News as UniSA turns French on Tuesday 15 May.
