Student safety

The ‘Think Before’ tagline reinforces the message that international students need to be aware of their surroundings, particularly late at night on public transport, and to plan their travel. These vital safety messages are available in 13 different languages and are also presented as an animated video. ‘George’ a fictional student has been created to allow international students a chance to consider these important messages.

Think Before is available through a website
A Student Safety in Victoria brochure can also be downloaded from


In cases when public transport is not available, taxis or hire car services may be available.
