French Day @ UniSA

15 May 2018


University of South Australia campuses

Experience French culture at UniSA

Together with Alliance Francaise and the Embassy of France in Australia, UniSA is bringing a bit of French culture to our campus with a range of activities at our Mawson Lakes, Magill and City West campuses. 

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.

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.
