Swinburne University of Technology welcomes the Victorian Government’s $50 million International Education Resilience Fund.
The fund was announced by the Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas this week as part of measures to help the state’s universities maintain international education programs and support international students in the wake of ongoing border closures.
It will provide funding to universities for international student welfare and support services, improved delivery of remote and offshore teaching and learning, and increased student engagement programs and events.
In announcing the funding, Mr Pallas recognised the critical role universities play in the Victorian economy and community, adding that they are key to our status as the ‘Education State’.
‘We are grateful that the Victorian Government recognises the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on our sector, and is taking steps to help attract and keep international students at Victorian universities like ours,’ Swinburne’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Pascale Quester said.
‘International students are valued members of our community. They contribute generously to the culture of Swinburne, creating a vibrant community, a global outlook and broadening our local students’ understanding of the world. Beyond our university, their presence benefits our society and the broader economy,’ she said.
