International students: Study Melbourne LIVE Projects 2018/19

Want to work on real-world business problems in a Victorian Government Agency, NGO or private enterprise?

Study Melbourne offers a unique opportunity to experience a three-week collaborative work project called LIVE Projects.

From project brief to final report in three weeks.

With other international students, you'll work in teams of five or six to come up with solutions to current business challenges for an organisation, which values diverse perspectives. You'll meet with your client once a week and be mentored through the process by an expert in the industry.

The program concludes in a boardroom-style presentation. You'll receive valuable feedback and a Certificate of Completion.

Benefits

This is great opportunity for you to gain valuable real-world experience. You'll develop the employability skills required to work in a global workplace, while expanding your social connections and networks in Australia.
