The Institute for Land, Water and Society has a variety of international linkages, projects and activities. Many of our researchers undertake projects with international scope, funded by international agencies and which provide a global perspective to our regional focus.
ILWS also welcomes the enrolment of international postgraduate research students from all countries to work on projects in collaboration with our members.
News and Activities
With so many of our new PhDs on the Albury campus coming from overseas this year, we decided to welcome them (and our new Aussie PhDs) and their supervisors with an Aussie morning tea with traditional favorites such as vegemite sandwiches, Pavlova, lamingtons, Anzac biscuits, and damper! Institute director not only welcomed the new students to the Institute in a suitably decorated School of Environmental Science tearoom but also provided the entertainment when he spun the billy so the students could have a cup of Aussie bush tea. The 11 new students at the morning tea were Paul Amoeteng, from Ghana, Chaka Chirozva from Zimbabwe, Theresa Groth and Joey Walters-Nevet from the US. Deepa Kumar, originally from India, Shasha Liu from China, Luisa Perez-Mujica from Mexico, Buddi Poudel and Eak Rana, both from Nepal, Erika Cross from Mildura, and Adrian Clements from Albury.
