Engaging Melbourne with Shiyun and Mehak

Engaging Melbourne is a program designed to allow international and local students to develop friendships as well as explore Melbourne, develop professional skills and broaden social networks. Study Melbourne is supporting this initiative created by the Melbourne Football Club, which is broken into five main activities; intercultural training, city dash, hands on football, match day and a leadership seminar.

Following the bi-annual city dash event, we caught up with two students to find out their experience with the program and Melbourne so far.
