Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome

The Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome is all about celebrating the diverse contribution of multiculturalism to this city, through overseas-born Melburnians and the presence of international students (nearly 30,000 international students live and study in Melbourne’s central city).

The next Lord Mayor’s Student Welcome event is scheduled for Saturday 24 March 2012 at City Square from 2 to 5pm.

This event won an IEAA (International Education Association Australia) Excellence Award – Best practice/Innovation in 2009.
