A last minute change will see the annual conference of Australia’s international student peak body CISA move from the Peninsula at Central Pier, Docklands, to Arrow on Swanston in Carlton instead. 

The conference and pre-conference workshop is due to begin next Monday July 6 through to Wednesday July 8.

The venue changes were announced on CISA’s official website though the conference’s registration page has yet to be updated as of this week.

The Gala Dinner, which consists of the “International Students’ Got Talent” competition and Excellence Awards, will still be hosted at its original Docklands venue however.

CISA president Thomson Ch’ng has confirmed the changes but declined to comment further, and said an official statement will be released at a later time.

More details to come…

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.
