Applications are now open for students interested in being part of the Melbourne International Student Conference 2017.

The Melbourne International Student Conference is an annual highlight on the international student calendar you won’t want to miss.

Hosted by Meld Community and the City of Melbourne, the conference provides an invaluable opportunity for students to develop themselves personally and professionally, and get a head start in thinking about their futures.

In its fourth year, the theme of this year’s conference is Next Gen Now, and seeks to explore the things that make this generation tick, what a successful career looks like to millennials, and how to get there starting from now.

Topics include working with meaning and purpose, cultural diversity and women in leadership, social entrepreneurship and strengths discovery and development.

See what last year’s attendees had to say about the conference.

Applications are now open for passionate, enthusiastic and can-do student volunteers who are interested in getting involved behind-the-scenes at this year’s conference taking place on May 5 and 6.

Volunteers will need to be available all day on both days, as well as attend training prior to the conference.

Students who are successful in their applications will be notified by email on April 19, which will also include details about training.
