The Victorian Government has backed experiential education company Intersective to deliver LIVE Projects – a collaborative work experience program for Victorian international students under Study Melbourne’s LIVE – Lead, Intern, Volunteer, Experience initiative.
Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade the Hon. Philip Dalidakis last week visited the Study Melbourne Student Centre to launch the LIVE initiative for international students in Victoria. The Minister said; “Through initiatives like LIVE, we are working to enhance the experience of our international students so Victoria’s education sector keeps its competitive edge, continues to create jobs for our state and supports the international student community”.
LIVE is aimed at further enhancing the international student experience in Victoria, particularly around social connectedness, engagement with the wider community and employability.
The first program under LIVE will see diverse teams of multidisciplinary students from Victorian education providers tackling business projects for Government, business and community organisations. The program will aim to engage some of the brightest future leaders from around the world studying in Victoria, in developing ideas for the industries of the future that will grow Victoria’s prosperity.
Study Melbourne have partnered with Australian experiential education technology start-up Intersective, to provide a platform connecting student teams and industry partners and supporting them through a project learning collaboration. The technology aims to support the scaling of this program to thousands of participants annually, and enable virtual collaboration with rural and regional, and internationally based students and project providers with those in Melbourne.
We are seeking expressions of interest and input into program design from Victorian Higher Education providers and Agencies, Businesses and community organisations. Please contact us
