Discover English is pleased to announce that has been shortlisted as a finalist at VIEA 2018 in the Excellence in International Student Experience Category.

Discover English is pleased to announce that has been shortlisted as a finalist at Victorian International Education Awards 2018 in the Excellence in International Student Experience Category.

We, at Discover English, identify the needs of our students using a multifaceted approach with a focus on staying relevant to a diverse student body with changing needs.

The Rainbow Connections Program is a social welfare program specifically geared towards international students in Melbourne who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or intersex. The program, co-funded by an International Student Welfare Program grant, offers opportunities for international students to find out about the local LGBTQI scene including programs, events and services. Some of the activities included free yoga and meditation classes to destress; something sorely needed for busy international students who work and study day and night.

In addition, the DE Student Ambassador program; a peer-to-peer support network offering new students assistance with integrating into the school dynamics and broader community allows international students to volunteer and gain professional experience in a second language.

These programs have further widened the channels of genuine and authentic communication between our staff and students leading to an overall enhanced international student experience for all those who choose to embark on their language learning journey with Discover English.

The awards ceremony will take place on the 25th of September in Melbourne, Victoria.
