CEO’s message to International students

 Welcome to Sunraysia Institute of TAFE. Our Institute is in the far north-west corner of Victoria and we are the largest government funded training provider in the region. We have nearly 8000 local students and many international students studying with us from 16 countries.

The major industries in the region are horticulture, health and welfare, retail, business, building and construction, and engineering. Growth industries are in mineral sands mining and renewable energy and SuniTAFE has preferred training status with companies in these sectors. Mildura is a popular tourism destination and training for this sector is also important. Skills in design, multimedia and information technology are in demand in the business sector.

We welcome international students to our campuses in both Mildura and Swan Hill. The two cities share many characteristics such as their warm sunny climate and clear blue skies, and although they are 235 kilometres apart both cities are located on the picturesque Murray River.

There are many advantages to studying in a regional city such as a safe, unpolluted and welcoming environment where you will have the opportunity to become a part of our vibrant community. I look forward to seeing you at SuniTAFE in the future.
