a victorian first: culture card for international students

Monday, May 31 2010

The Culture Card www.culturecardvictoria.com.au which gives international students access to some of Victoria’s Cultural attractions, was  launched on Sunday 23 May at the National Sports Museum at the MCG by Skills and Workforce Participation Minister Bronwyn Pike, will give international students living in Victoria a virtual key to some of the state’s best attractions.


“The Culture Card will be available free to every international student living in Victoria,” she said. “The card will help students get a better understanding of Victoria’s culture, our obsession with sport and food, and our interests in zoos, parks and gardens.

 
“Some of Victoria’s best organisations will provide Culture Card holders with great offers, including the AFL, Cricket Victoria, Melbourne Cricket Club, Museums Victoria, Zoos Victoria, Royal Botanic Gardens, the Arts Centre, Melbourne Aquarium and the Shrine of Remembrance.”
 
Ms Pike said the Culture Card was part of the Government’s plan to ensure international students get a warm welcome when they arrive in Victoria. It is part of a suite of services that are providing international students with the support, information and assistance they need. These services include: the Student Welcome Desk at Melbourne International Airport, the Study Melbourne website and the 24-hour International Student Care Service in Carlton.
 
The Culture Cards would be distributed through universities and education providers when international students first arrived in Melbourne. Students can register online for a Culture Card and keep up to date with offers at: www.culturecardvictoria.com.au
