1. Special Event to Farewell International Students from Melbourne
Over the years, we have had hundreds of international students attend our regular monthly Welcome to Melbourne events, but we would like to bring even more students together from different educational facilities across Victoria for another official international students event.
We are seeking official guests from all levels of government in Australia - local, state and federal. Cr Jennifer Kanis from the City of Melbourne is confirmed. We have a special guest speaker, Melanie Jones.
This event is our way to say thank you to all students who have chosen Melbourne as their study city.
6:00pm - 7:30pm
Closest train station is Southern Cross.
All ages and backgrounds welcome.
See the Metlink Melbourne website for public transport details.
Car parking in the city can be expensive, although several car parks offer a special rate after 6pm - usually around $12 for the evening.
There is no cost to attend this event
Some light refreshments (tea, coffee, juice, water and snacks) will be available.
6. This event is designed for
International Students living in Melbourne and any organisations or individuals (friends, family etc) associated with the students.
You can come on your own or with other people. You can be any age, children can come with you. You can stay for five minutes or 90 minutes!
Anyone who would like to attend is ALWAYS welcome at a Newcomers Network event. However, for catering purposes, please register below. This means that you do NOT have to be an international student to attend (or one who is leaving Melbourne). But the event is designed to say 'farewell' to those students who are leaving.
7. Event Description
This informal social event has been designed to help you meet other international students who have been studying in Melbourne and are about to return to their home country.
You may like to bring your own business or personal card to share with other people you meet or a small notepad and pen if you are given information from others that you would like to keep.
We encourage everyone to move around during the evening so it is easy to meet other people. Everyone is most welcome and you can continue to attend other Welcome to Melbourne events as frequently or as infrequently as you like (either before you leave Melbourne or when you return).
8. On arrival
You can receive a sticky label name tag and can start chatting to other people.
