The Victorian Coalition Government has opened nominations for the prestigious Victorian International Education Awards 2014, which recognise innovative international education institutions, companies and service providers as well as the exceptional accomplishments of individual students.
Minister for Employment and Trade Louise Asher said the awards provide a valuable opportunity to profile Victoria’s competitive position internationally by recognising industry best practice and the strength of the state’s research and industry partnerships.
With more than 140,000 international student enrolments each year, the VIEAs are an opportunity to recognise, celebrate and spotlight the significant cultural, social and economic benefits the state receives from the international education sector.
International students must be currently studying at an education institution in Melbourne and regional Victoria, aged between 18 – 35 years of age and completing post-secondary education including postgraduate, undergraduate, vocational education and training and English language qualifications.
Nominations for the awards will be open until 9 July 2014. Winners of the student awards will receive a $10,000 scholarship to contribute to their study in Victoria.
