WHAT ARE THE VICTORIAN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AWARDS?

The Victorian International Education Awards presented by Study Melbourne, is a government initiative that recognises the effort and achievements of Melbourne’s international student community. It celebrates the significant contribution international students offer in making Melbourne the culturally-diverse part of Australia that it is, and so much more.

Last year, Holmesglen international student Junel Tagarino was a finalist in the Vocational Education category. In 2018, Iyiade (Hybee) Aibinuomo and Ka Ho (Dereck) Lee were award winners. Read more about Junel, Iyiade and Ka Ho's experiences. 

Do you know a high-achieving international student that deserves recognition? Is it you? Read on for more information about this opportunity. 

 

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

Award winners in each category, with the exception of the International Alumnus of the Year, are awarded $6,000 and up to two runners-up per category are awarded $2,000 each.

All finalists and winners will receive a certificate of recognition.

The recipient of the ‘Premier’s Award – International Student of the Year’ will receive an additional $10,000 to be used for their studies.

All award winners will automatically become part of the Study Melbourne Ambassador program in 2021.
