Watch our session on the issues facing international students and architects during the pandemic, with Shelley Duffy and Thihoa Gill. Access CPD below.

What challenges do our international colleagues in Australia face during COVID-19? What broad strategies are relevant to navigating these? How can their colleagues assist? Shelley Duffy and Thihoa Gill discuss the situation in conversation with Naomi Stead and Justine Clark.

Shelley is a Registered Migration Agent (MARN 0801496) and owner of Simply Visas and has extensive experience of working with built environment practitioners. Thihoa is Studio Manager of Grimshaw Melbourne – in which capacity she has employed people from all over the world.
