Event description
Committee for Melbourne in collaboration with La Trobe University are delighted to invite you to our forum on the ‘road to recovery’.

About this event

Melbourne is a world-leading international student destination. Ranked third in the 2019 QS Student Cities Index, the city’s high quality education, research and training sector was a magnet for students and researchers around the world prior to COVID-19.

It was not just Melbourne, but Victoria, that benefitted from the international education sector. In 2018-19, $12.6 billion in export revenue was generated for Victoria and the sector directly supported almost 79,000 local jobs. Indirect economic benefits that flowed to other sectors were enormous. Yet international education offered Victoria more than dollars and jobs; foreign students enriched the state culturally and provided it with deep and long-lasting global ties.

Unfortunately, Victoria and Australia’s international education sector and sectors supported by it, have been left reeling by the disruption brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. How these sectors, the state, and country, respond will be of monumental importance to all of us.

Moderated by Committee for Melbourne’s CEO, Martine Letts, join us as we discuss the state of international education in Victoria, and the efforts required to ensure Melbourne remains a globally-significant student city.

Guest Speakers:

Professor Richard Speed | Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International), La Trobe University

Bronte Neyland | Pro Vice-Chancellor (Future Students and Marketing), Victoria University

Professor Michael Wesley| Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International) University of Melbourne

Councillor Philip Le Liu | Chair, International Engagement portfolio, City of Melbourne

During the forum you will have the opportunity to ask questions via the Q&A feature.

This forum will run from 11.00am to12.00pm with an optional 20 minute e-networking session afterwards.

For general enquiries please contact the events team at events@melbourne.org.au.

We look forward to hosting you.

Kind Regards,

Committee for Melbourne
