Internal Communication
To All Saudi Aramco Students
studying in Australia / New Zealand

Effective 17th November 2007


Dear Student,

I am pleased to announce that there are now in excess of 120 students studying varying programs at leading Australian universities, and NZ technical training colleges. This is a great achievement, in such a small time frame.

We all very proud of the excellent work you are doing, and the ambassadorial role you all lead in enhancing the Saudi Aramco name in this region.

As our numbers swell, this program requires a great deal of effort to manage and support. With this I am pleased to further announce that effective from 17th November 2007, Saudi Aramco has established a local support office in Melbourne, Australia to support you.

The Australian office will be headed by Dr Antonio Vincent Curulli, who has been appointed by Saudi Aramco as its consultant to support you during your time here in Australia and New Zealand.

Antonio will report directly to myself on all matters, and I will still be responsible for all the students well being, and progress in this region. This appointment is to merely assist our office in Kuala Lumpur and further provide much needed academic and administrative support locally for you.

Antonio will lead a committed team from his office in Melbourne that will assist you in the following areas:

Student Arrival Assistance

Advice with regards to longer term accommodation
Briefing Student on the use and access to the Student Forum and Discussion Board

Ongoing Support, Counselling and Reporting

Be available to you to call to discuss any matters, you wish for the office to take up with the University, and /or Saudi Aramco.
Visit you on campus twice annually, during week 3 or 4 of each semester.
Conduct of formal evaluations of your progress annually, and provide written reports.
Meet with your key Academic Staff of each program, regarding your performance, and determination of key improvements to be made for optimizing your programs.

Administrative Duties

Work closely with University Research Departments to identify areas of mutual research interest, and communicate this to the relevant departments within Saudi Aramco.
Identify and report to the company any HR Development Program initiatives found suitable.


To deliver on these activities there are several initiatives that have already been implemented now, while items 5 - Discussion Board will be developed over the next few weeks and forever will be evolving:

1. A 24/7 1300 call number with a live receptionist in the case of an emergency. The number you can call any time from a fixed line is

Between 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday, this will be answered by Antonio’s team in Melbourne, after hours this will be answered by a receptionist, who will take down your details and email Antonio directly to his mobile email system, whereby he will return you call as soon as is possible. Calls to this number from a landline are free.


2. A fax to email call number service has been established, whereby all documents such as travel forms, medical receipts etc can be faxed to. This fax number is

Calls to this number from a landline are free.

3. A Email support address has been set up to service all students, this email address is

4. Antonio will make himself available to talk to you at all times, if you have any problem, please feel free to contact him on his mobile number below

Calls to this number are charged at your local call rates.



5. A Saudi Aramco Student Forum website has been established, where all students can register, and access many benefits.

We encourage you to go to the following website and register your details, at which time you will receive a confirmation of membership, which will entitle you to browse all the discussion boards.

Here you will also find relevant company forms, policies and procedures and other information relevant to your studies while in Australia.


Antonio will be the lead moderator of this discussion board, but please feel free to contact him, if you wish to establish new content, and new discussion topics. Additional Moderators would be most welcome.

I trust that you can now feel the level of commitment that Saudi Aramco is investing into this region. You are all very valuable assets of our company, and these initiatives in this region will greatly enhance this value, through greater level of support and guidance.


Again, I am always at your disposal, so please feel free to contact me anytime. I also urge you to build a solid working relationship with Antonio, as I am sure that it will greatly assist you in meeting your own goals and objectives.



Warmest Regards

Welcome all

Post  Husain Al Yousif on Mon Mar 24, 2008 1:53 am

Welcome all to Saudi Aramco Students Forum and sorry for this late reply as we were all enjoying our holidays at Saudi Very Happy

I personally appreciate the efforts Antonio and Mr. Al Dossary are conducting to improve the ways to communicate between the company and

the students. Being in Australia is a challenge for all of us and for Aramco and I was one of those who came first and can see where we were

and where are we today.

Though I am not a big fan of forums, I will do my best to participate and communicate with all my colleuges around Australia to share ideas

and make suggestions to overcome difficulties.

Thanks again Antonio and Mr Al Dossary

wait for my new topics in this forum

Cheers
