This month, students from near and far are invited to celebrate the contribution international students make to the city at the inaugural Melbourne International Student Week.
The week-long festival kicks off with a bumper opening weekend on May 7 and 8 at Federation Square, featuring an array of food, live entertainment and giveaways. The festival officially begins with a Welcome to Country and dance showcase by the Djirri Djirri dance group — Wurundjeri's only female dance company — while the two-day program at Fed Square also includes stand-up comedy by Annie Louey and He Huang, DJ sets, an international student photo exhibition and interactive salsa and K-pop dance workshops.
You'll be able to stay fuelled with eats from a spread of international food trucks, free coffee and a dumpling giveaway — there'll be 1000 serves up for grabs — taking place on Saturday. Speaking of giveaways, there will also be 800 free hoodies given out at random times all weekend long.
The weekend will be the start of a stacked week of events for Melbourne's international students, who can join wildlife sanctuary tours, museum tours and career coaching workshops and more. The best part? All events are free.
Melbourne International Student Week kicks off on Saturday, May 7 with a two-day event at Federation Square. For more details and to see the full lineup, head to the website.
