The Flinders Adelaide Agent famil event took place on Thursday 17 June. Over 24 agents from 20 agencies descended upon the new Flinders University Train Station for a day filled with all things Flinders.
Designed for new counsellors and those who had not visited Flinders in some time, the Flinders International team created a dynamic and highly interactive day of activities.
Agents got to experience our campus, meet with Academics and hear all about the benefits of studying with Flinders.
For Senior Manager, International Recruitment Matt Beazley, it was important to meet the new agent recruits in person.
“Given the ongoing challenges we’ve had in our sector, we haven’t had the opportunity to meet many of the agents in person over the last 18 months,” he said. “While there have been some enforced restrictions to visitors on-campus, much has changed, and there are many new benefits for students to studying at Flinders we wanted to share.”
The day began in the city at Adelaide Railway Station, where agents and the recruitment team experienced the 22-minute train journey to Flinders University firsthand. The groups then moved on to Flinders Medical Centre (FMC), where they met with academics from Medicine, Speech Pathology, and Audiology
A short stroll later from FMC, lunch was held at the onsite restaurant Alere, where Matt Schultz, Director, International Recruitment, welcomed everyone to campus. Post lunch, a campus tour and a visit to The Void, a multipurpose production stage, incorporating motion capture and virtual production capability.
Flinders at Tonsely – our $120 million hub of innovation which centrally locates the University’s teaching and research in computer science, artificial intelligence, defence and national securities, autonomous vehicles, information technology, engineering, and mathematics – was next on the agenda. Agents got interact with the robots in our Robotics Lab and have a play in the solar car while checking out the Digital Transformation Lab.
After an epic day of activities, drinks and nibbles were shared before heading back to the city. The feedback from the event was extremely positive, and we can’t wait to share more of these in-person interactions in the future.
