Victorian International Education Awards 2018 - Now Open

Victorian International Education Awards 2018

The Victorian International Education Awards, presented by Study Melbourne, are an initiative of the Victorian Government to support the international education sector, promote best practice in the sector, and raise awareness of its benefits to the broader community.

Award Categories

The 2018 VIEAs will include the two main categories of Student Awards and Provider Awards, and the relevant Premier’s Awards.

The Student awards will feature the following seven awards:

  • International Student of the Year – English Language Training
  • International Student of the Year – VET
  • International Student of the Year – Higher Education
  • International Student of the Year – Research
  • International Student of the Year – Regional
  • International Alumnus of the Year
  • Victorian Student of the Year – Internationalisation

The Provider Awards will feature the following awards:

  • Excellence in International Education – TAFE
  • Excellence in International Education – University
  • Excellence in International Education – English Language
  • Excellence in International Education – Private Education and Training
  • Excellence in International Student Experience
  • Excellence in International Student Employability and Career Development
  • Excellence in Innovation in Partnership and International Engagement

In addition, the Premier’s Awards will recognise an overall International Student of the Year and International Education/Service Provider. Nominees for other awards automatically become nominees for the Premier's awards so these awards require no additional nomination.

Recipients of the Student Awards will also be recognised as advocates for the Victorian Government’s Study Melbourne initiative and help promote the State as a leading international student destination.

Award Amounts

International Student Award winners, with the exception of the International Alumnus of the Year, are awarded up to $10,000 to contribute to their study at an educational institution in Victoria, while the recipient of the ‘Premier’s Award – International Student of the Year’ receives an additional $10,000 towards their studies.

Applications are now open and close at midnight on Sunday 17 June 2018.
All applications must be submitted online.
