Victoria University Travel Australia Group (VUTAG) is a responsible and sustainable travel group. VUTAG provides a platform for students and staff to travel together and explore Australia in a safe and constructive environment. The purpose of the group is to strengthen student community bonding and build trust and at the same time enhance student well being.
There is a lot of pressure and stress in adjusting to the new environment and postgrad studies, as it is hard to balance the newly acquired responsibilities in the classroom with long-term responsibilities of research. This can be especially hard for international students who are staying away from the family members and childhood friends, employment, assignments and household management.
"Loneliness and isolation, lack of human compassion and support of family can bog us down, especially in the initial phase of settling down in the new environment as we also try to adapt to the cultures new to us. That is why I though VUTAG can help!", says Roopa, VUTAG's initiator and PhD student, originally from India.
At VUTAG, our endeavour is to create a stress free environment for students to enjoy their time in Australia by inculcating the habit of traveling together and spending time with nature. We intend to enrich the students' experience in Australia by creating an opportunity to explore the destinations together, foster new friendships and create stronger bonds with our fellow students.
Graduating is not easy so why not making it easier and more enjoyable with the help of other postgrads? VUTAG's motto Safety First focuses on trust, team building and unique, custom designed tours that will provide memorable travel and learning experiences.
All events are designed by considering student budgets and needs!
