NSW International Student Awards

Celebrating excellence

Study NSW coordinates the NSW International Student Awards held in Sydney in October each year.

The NSW International Student Awards recognise the outstanding contributions international students make to communities in NSW and celebrate excellence in international student community engagement.

Last year more than 260,000 international students enrolled in courses across NSW’s excellent education institutions, helping to make NSW the vibrant, multicultural and dynamic place that it is. Many international students become great ambassadors for NSW as future leaders and advocates for trade, diplomacy and research links. The NSW Government acknowledges their valuable contribution to the State and reaffirms its commitment to making their study experience in NSW the best it can be.
