As an international student, you automatically become part of the Melbourne Polytechnic International Student Association (MPISA) family. There’s no need to apply, fill in any forms or pay anything.
At Melbourne Polytechnic, we believe that inclusivity benefits the entire student community. All of our campuses are richly multicultural and our activities foster a culture of inclusivity. The role of the MPISA is to look after the wellbeing of international students and help this dynamic environment flourish.
The MPISA facilitates programs, events and activities that enrich your learning experience as an international student. You’ll have the opportunity to network and create your own events and programs with our support. With the help of MPISA, we hope Melbourne Polytechnic will soon feel like a home away from home.
After you enrol, you will receive an email inviting you to International Students Welcome Day. At the Welcome Day, you’ll receive useful information to help you adjust to student life in Australia, including presenters from Tenancy Victoria, Metro and Victoria Police, as well as speakers from Melbourne Polytechnic Library and MPISA.
You will receive a regular e-newsletter through your student email to keep you updated on all the events happening in Melbourne Polytechnic and around Melbourne. The MPISA also organise trips and tours, movie nights, dinner, conversation club and team-bonding activities such as rock-climbing, games and boating trips.
If you would like to get involved, contribute and assist in organising programs to enhance the international student experience, contact Chewy Fang now to join the International Student Leaders program.
