SYN Radio - international students on air

IF you are an international student living in the City of Melbourne and are between 12 and 25 years-old, here’s your chance in a lifetime to be the host of your own dedicated weekly show on radio for an entire season.

SYN is a media organisation run by a community of young people that provides training and broadcast opportunities for young Australians.

More specifically, the organisation seeks to offer young people aged between 12 and 25 the skills and platforms to be creators, not just consumers, of media.

This year, they are extending their reach to international students, as part of the International Students on Air project, supported by the City of Melbourne. It includes:

  • Training in radio and media skills (held in an intensive weekend format)
  • Content development training and support
  • Hosting your own weekly radio show LIVE on SYN Radio for a full SYN season
  • A complimentary SYN Membership and support for a full year.

Students will need to be available for training on April 13, 20 and 27, 2014 from 11am to 4pm, and must be available for the weekly radio program on Saturday afternoons from May to July.

Applications close on Friday, March 28. To apply, head to For questions or more information, email or call 03 9925 4747.

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
