Study Melbourne welcomed international students in style

On 5 March 2020, Study Melbourne hosted a unique welcome event for international students at the Arts Centre Melbourne. Featuring an Aboriginal dance performance, a formal welcome from Ms Georgina McCann, Director, Study Melbourne, food, drink and games. The event was lots of fun for all involved. Ms McCann shared with students how warmly the Melbourne community consider international students, and how they value the global perspectives they bring to Victorian campuses and to the community. The 2020 Study Melbourne Student Ambassadors were also introduced at the event. To find out more about the International Student Welcome, please read this article
