Kick off this Saturday afternoon with fantastic activities and the opportunity to expand your social network at the same time, at the Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome 2016 event at City Square.

This unique event is all about recognising and celebrating the awesome contribution that multiculturalism makes to this city, and invites the participation of the some 36,000 international students who live and study in the city. 

Organised by young people for young people, come ready to meet other students from all around the world, take part in cultural dance performances and workshops, sign up for volunteering opportunities and grab some free giveaways along the way.

As with previous years, this award-winning event also features the anticipated Fashion Runway, face-painting, and the chance to get up close with scaly Australian reptile friends.

The Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome invites all international students to take part in an afternoon of exciting activities with great company this Saturday March 19, 1.30pm to 5pm at City Square. For more information, head to the Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome 2016 Facebook page.

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.
