Save the date: Melbourne International Student Week | 4 – 10 October

The inaugural Melbourne International Student Week (MISW) will be taking place this October.

The Future Focus Group project will bring together all students studying in Melbourne – both local and from abroad – by showcasing the culture and services that this great city has to offer. The vision for MISW is to enhance the lived experience of Melbourne for international students and to foster the deeper ties they develop within their local communities.

A flagship event will be held at Fed Square on 6 – 7 October, with a range of supporting events taking place across Melbourne throughout the week.

Councils, universities, community groups and businesses have been invited to submit events that align with MISW’s vision of creating deeper connections between international students and the Melbourne community.

Longer term, the goal is to position the week-long festival as an integral part of Melbourne’s major events calendar, encompassing hundreds of individual events across the state.

If you are interested in submitting an event or would like to support the team in bringing the festival to life, please get in touch with Kate Eichler via
