Welcome to the new series empowering international student leaders across Melbourne, the Study Melbourne Leadership Labs 4Impact!

Study Melbourne would like to invite you to take part in an exciting new initiative – Study Melbourne Leadership Labs 4Impact – which will support the empowerment and leadership skills of emerging and future international student leaders, to bring projects to life in the local Melbourne community.

Between August and October of 2020, you will have the opportunity to participate in 12 Leadership Labs, all while connecting with a community of motivated international students who are all studying in Melbourne. As you work through the topics, you will not only learn the skills and mindsets of social-changemakers, but be exposed to exciting ways to apply the learning in the real-world team-based projects, and how to leverage these new skills to increase your employability and aid in your career journey.

This initiative will be launched on Friday 14 August and will run until the end of October covering a range of topics including Entrepreneurship, Civic Participation, Prototyping, Pitching & Advocacy – just to name a few.

The Study Melbourne Student Ambassadors will also participate through webinars and other special events, and it is our hope that the Labs will become a premium student experience that connects and strengthens networks across Victoria, through co-design and a partnership approach.

When

Every week on Friday, starting 14 August (until 30 October 2020)

3:00pm - 4:30pm

Where

These sessions will be hosted online via the ZOOM platform. Find the links for each session in the table below.  Make sure you register in advance.
