The Victorian Government is committed to international students studying in Victorian schools and holds a range of events to ensure that students have a great time studying with us.
Welcoming international students
At the start of every school year, the Governor of Victoria welcomes over 300 new international students who have just started their journey with us. The ceremony is a great opportunity for international students from schools across Victoria to meet each other, and to visit Victoria's most prestigious residence, Government House.
Listening to international students' feedback
After students have been studying with us for some time, we invite them to the International Student Forum. The Student Forum is an opportunity for international students to tell us how we can improve our program and make the international student study experience the best it can be.
Recognising outstanding achievement
We also celebrate international student excellence and recognise schools and homestay families for outstanding global learning and engagement. The annual Victorian Global Learning Awards are open to all current Victorian Year 11 and 12 international school students, government and non-government schools and their homestay families.
Education Agent Awards
The Victorian Government also recognises accredited education agents for their loyalty, service excellence and commitment to working with us to deliver high-quality services to international students through the Education Agent Service Excellence Awards.
