Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade the Hon. Philip Dalidakis launched 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”.

Higher Education Partners

We are seeking expressions of interest and input to the program from Higher Education providers seeking to enhance employability outcomes and work experience opportunities for their international students.

Diverse, multi-disciplinary student teams will tackle business projects for Victorian Government agencies, through a structured process – around 50 hours of work over 3-6 weeks.

Students will be supported with a consulting mentor and the LIVE Project learning platform for task structuring, content delivery, deliverable submission and team / mentor collaboration.
