The Association of the Vietnamese Students in Queensland (AVSQ) has organized the Future Queenslanders project in an effort to help Vietnamese students better integrate into life in Australia.

Designed with three milestones, the project, held from January to March 9, aimed at providing Vietnamese students, especially newcomers to Australia, with the necessary knowledge and skills while studying in the country.

According to Quan Nguyen Quynh Anh, head of the project, the AVSQ is expected to give the students a better insight into the life of overseas students in Australia and help them get connected with each other.

The Milestone 1 event, called Queensland Know All, was arranged in Vietnam to give the participants an overview of Queensland state and Brisbane City in particular. Meanwhile, Milestone 2, named "AVSQO-week", was organized in the Australian city to share experiences and information related to healthcare, finance, and learning methods with the Vietnamese students who set foot in the city for the first time.

The Milestone 3 event brought together 40 Vietnamese in Australia for several traditional games, helping strengthen connectivity within the Vietnamese community.

Established on June 18, 2021, with the support of the Vietnamese Embassy in Australia and the Vietnamese General Consulate in Sydney, the AVSQ is a non-profit organization that focuses on skill development and career orientation programs for Vietnamese students in Queensland and Australia as a whole.
